It was like that when I got here...

I have been given 3 external drives and 1 NAS drive from work. I haven't looked at the NAS drive yet. I've plugged in an external drive and while it wouldn't show in my computer, it did so in disk management. It's been used as a data vault so I assume it had been formatted for linux as I'm pretty sure it's been plugged into a server or something. I deleted the volume and created a new simple partition. This is where my question comes in. I'ts a 2TB drive. A quick format would not work, it just wouldn't do it, so I tried a non-quick format and it seems to be working, however it's at 51% after nearly 9 hours. Does that indicate, as I suspect, that the drive is fucked or could it have something to do with the mini USB 2.0 connection?
