A warning about formatting your drive in Vista and Windows 7

Wednesday, July 14th, 2010

We just want to warn people about formatting their drives in Windows Vista and Windows 7. If you uncheck the option for quick format, the operating system does a full destructive format, making data recovery impossible once it is finished.

So unless you are giving your drive away, or selling it, do not do a full format if there is a chance you will need the data on the drive, as the data will no longer be there, or recoverable.

Be sure you have the option for quick format selected.
