Should I Reformat My Hard Drive For My Newly Built Computer?

Postby Attmore » Sun Oct 15, 2017 7:47 pm

So yeah, i've built my own computer, but due to my restricted student style budget I'm using some of the parts from my previous computer, like my hard drive for example.

Should I reformat my hard drive when I have connected it all up on my new computer during its first start up with a CD? or should I reformat it before that?

Or should I not reformat it at all? o.0

It doesn't really make a difference.

it dosn't matter that you format it or not you see Hard disk is a kind of memory which remembers everything and stores in it, so formating is not good idea but if you want to install new OS (operating system) like windows 7,8 or according to your new hardwares then you must format it and install new OS which you want in it but take the back up first, you must format the hard disk after it is connected because when you instal OS then it will perfectly get fit with your new hardwares. so realy it do not matters to format its up to you that you want latest OS or current OS. it will not make difference that you format or not. don't worry do as you want and don't wait for other answer and trust me i did such experiments lots of times.
