Samsung 850 EVO not formatting

JUMP TO SOLUTION

Windows 10 pro 64 bit is unable to format drive.  This is a new build.  Keeps getting error 0x80070057. Is the drive defective? Or is it the Win 10 USB thumb drive?  This is my first SSD drive.

Hi userBakE6OmRBO,

 
If the SSD is not formatting, that usually means that the drive itself is bad. However, I'd remake the windows installer
just in case it is the windows installer before moving on. If the issue continues even after that, the drive may need to be 
replaced.
