CMD No-1 ? diskpart, and then press Enter.

After pressing Enter, your computer’s Hard Disk and all the storage devices connected to your computer will be displayed. Now here the Disk 0 means your computer’s Hard Disk and Disk 1 means your Pen Drive or SD Card which you have inserted in your computer. If you are using more than one Pen Drive or SD Card in your computer, then it can also be Disk 2 and Disk 3.

CMD No-3 ? select disk 1, and press Enter.
As you press Enter, it comes by writing: – Disk 1 is now the selected disk.

As i just told you if you are using more than one memory card or pen drive in your computer So here you have to select the disk very carefully. Any mistakes during this step may result in the loss of data that you do not want to delete. Otherwise, there are more chances that you may format your internal hard drive.

Pls Note: Here if you select a different disk by mistake, then what disk you select will be formatted. So here you have to work very carefully.

Once you are sure that you have selected the correct drive, move to next command:
CMD No-4 ? clean, and press Enter. 
It comes as you press Enter: – Diskpart is successful in cleaning the disk.

Now you have to make a partition here. To create a partition, you have to enter the following command 5 here:-
CMD No-5   ? create partition primary, and press Enter. 
It comes as you press enter: – Diskpart succeeded in creating specific partition.

Now the partition we have created is to make it active. To activate Partition, you must enter the below command 6 here: – 
CMD No-6 ? active, and press Enter. 
It comes as you type it by pressing: – Diskpart marked the current partition is active.

Now here’s the command 7 to add:

Now you have to format the disk which you need to repair. To format, now you have to type a command 8 here which is the last command: –

CMD No-8 ? format fs = fat32, and press Enter.

We have write fat32 here because all Pen Drives or SD Cards are always format in fat32. You can write NTFS instead of fat32 if you want to carry files larger than 4 gigabytes.

Formatting starts as you press Enter, which takes a lot of time to complete 100%. And also depending on what is the capacity of the Pen Drive or SD card you want to repair? Meaning of how many GB is it. Don’t close the CMD window until the process is finished.
