Using Microsoft's DiskPart utility

Open a command prompt and type diskpart, a new command prompt will open when you can start using diskpart.

Type HELP to display the available commands.

The command that I've found useful is clean all.

List available disks.
Code:
list disk

Selecting a disk
Code:
select disk 3

Cleaning a disk
Code:
clean all

If it's successful you'll get
DiskPart succeeded in cleaning the disk.
