If you need to format the Internal SSD Drive, you can follow the below steps. This helps you format/wipe all contents of the internal SSD without having to use a computer.
- When an unformatted Internal SSD Drive is plugged in as the primary drive, Monument formats this drive and creates a partition automatically.
- Formatting function is not available for external USB drives. This menu option is available only if an internal SSD is configured as primary drive.
