I want to format my SSD 1T that I have in my old PC before using it an an external Hard Drive. How do I do in Ubuntu? Thanks
Is there are reason you need to format it before adding it as an external drive? If you are going to be connecting it to a machine running Ubuntu you can just install GParted (
sudo apt install gparted) & format it once it is connected.
If you need to format before removing it from your old system, you can download a live GParted image & burn it to an optical disc or USB drive. Then boot your old system from said disc/drive to launch GParted live. There you can use it to format the internal drive to NTFS.
Note: If you prefer using the terminal, you can use GNU parted (
sudo apt install parted).
