A warning about formatting your drive in Vista and Windows 7

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.
