I have external hard drive which is 300GB. I set it to format to NTFS. Well there wasn't FAT32 in the list, though I know on Windows it asks me to set FAT32 because it has large capacity.
It started formating but I didn't get any window that shows progress. I just see the LED diode flashing all the time, meaning the disk works something.
I also tried to restart the PC but it asked me for my user password with a message that I should not restart at this time.
How can I know the progress of formatting my external hard drive on Ubuntu 16.04 ?
PS. should I close my PC forcefully?
