Hi!

I have to format my SSD in cmd, and have tried this command:

"Attributes Disk Clear Readonly"

This should usually work fine in most cases, but the message I get says it's not allowed.
The SSD is my former boot-disk with Win 8 installed on it.

Does anyone know a command or e sequence that will allow me to format the disk?
