How the Process of Formatting Works
We often get questions about how to reformat a hard drive and what’s necessary. For one, it permanently deletes pictures, files, programs, music, settings and everything that is stored on your computer through that hard drive. This is why it is essential that you back up all of your information before formatting. We save all of the information on a backup drive from your computer and reinstall your operating system clean once the format is complete. We can back up files using an external hard drive, flash drive, online backup service or CD/DVD depending on what you prefer.
Why Format a Hard Drive
There are a few reasons why people choose to reformat every year. It’s a maintenance issue, but it also prevents your hard drive from breaking down on an older system. Most people want to reformat a hard drive so that they can sell a computer to someone else. If this is the case, you want to make sure that all of your personal information is removed from the hard drive and that your hard drive is completely fresh for the new owner. Our technicians make sure that we back up all of your information beforehand so that you have access to your files while completely removing all of the information from your old hard drive. No matter what happens, the new owner can’t ever access your files. Reformatting is also beneficial if you are buying a used computer. In some cases, you may buy a computer that hasn’t been reformatted and you don’t want any of their information on the hard drive.
Viruses and Reformatting
One reason that many choose to reformat is because of a bad virus infestation. If you have very slow computer performance and lots of error messages, you could have multiple instances of viruses. They may have already gotten so deep into your system that you can’t get rid of them without damaging your files. If this is the case, you have to reformat your hard drive and completely wipe all of your information. You can still save some of your personal files to a backup, but you may not want to place all of the information on a hard drive because the virus may be able to get back onto your hard drive through your backup. Working with our service technicians ensures that you get back most of your data while also reformatting the hard drive to be like new.
Reformat for Multiple Operating Systems
If you work with different operating systems, then it’s imperative to use a professional reformatting service so it won’t take you hours of backing up data and reformatting each drive. We can make this quick work and ensure that all of your operating systems get a fresh install while saving all of your data.
