  • Could it be that you are not using the "Quick format" option?

  • Hi Meir,

    As Kerwin mentioned, please check if the "Quick format" checkbox on the partition properties page is marked. How many clients are faced with this situation?

    By the way, it's normal as the OSD TS take 60 to 90 min or higher when it runs on the machine usually. 

    Hope it helps. Look forward to your feedback.

    Best regards,
    Simon Ren
