I used PowerShell to run multiple instances of sg3_format
sg3_format just sends the format command to the drive. The formatting process is internal. It happens on the drive itself. You do not need to run multiple instances of the tool to complete format. The tool just keeps polling the drive for the status updates. You can disable this default behavior with the `-e`. If you would like to poll the status manually - use `sg_turs -p`.
