Formatting partition is needed to be carried out in the following two situations. One is that we have to partition and format partition when we buy a new hard disk. The other is that we may format a partition when we want to wipe all data in it. Of course, users may think that they can delete all data in partition through the following steps: firstly, they can select all files in a certain partition after entering it; then, they may right click on the selected files and choose “Delete”. Finally, they may wait for the completion of deletion. The above steps are commonly used by us to delete something in our computer. However, there is another way for us to delete all data of a partition. We don’t need to select all files in a partition. All we need to do is just choose to format it.
In view of this, we’d like to suggest users that they choose to format partition rather than directly select and delete the files which are useless for users now, because for data deletion, formatting partition is not only complete, but also fast.
