hi
I have 2 HD's .a 60 gig and a 4 gig. I amhaving problemswith the big one and I want to format it. I am running off of the 4gig. I am wondering what the best way to format the 60 would be. should i just go to accessories , MS-DOS and use fdisk? or is there a better,safer way?

There are a few ways to do this can use the utility disk that came with you hdd if not you can go to there site and download it.. Also xp will do this when you install the windows xp cd and make sure u have first boot sit to cdrom ..

if you know the make of your hard drive then simply go to the manufacturer's website in the support or download area you can download their setup disk programs.

If you just want to format it, right click the drive in my computer and select format.

If you want to delete the partition, recreate the partition and then reformat, then do this through disk administrator. Right click my computer, select manage, select disk administrator from the left hand plane.
