Another question about the HD...
Is it necessary to sit through a full format? Or is quick format ok?
I don't know how long a full format of this drive would take, but I'm guessing more than a few minutes.
I like to do a full format the first time around I've read that it's a good idea because it'll mark bad sectors ( If there are any) and you get the desirable sector size.. I may be working on outdated ideas here and I'd also like to hear the other guys opinions on this.
