    Hi sn00ker. Formatting a drive erases everything on the drive.
    Well... Technically it only erases the partition being formatted. You really don't format physical drives, you partition physical drives, then format the partitions.

    Technically you are correct but my drive only has one partition so I do format the drive. :)
