No real need for a link to a web-site. It's easy enough. But still it's easier linked to then written myself:
If you need help on which options to fill in, please post again.
You can also do it from the MS-DOS command prompt byt typing
followed by enter. That's about all. It has a lot of options, but most aren't applicable.
Two additional remarks:
- The DOS-format (and I think the Windows variant also) after formatting reports if there are any 'bad sectors' on the diskette. Throw away every diskette with a bad sector. This should really be zero or the medium is unreliable.
- Formatting a diskette takes about 2-3 minutes. Every track is written and checked, and that's slow. And you can't do it in the background, because the old MS-DOS coding severely blocks Windows, so other programs hardly run.
Hope this helps.
I have 98SE with IE and have alot of floppies that I have deleted things from but I was told I needed to format?? or reformat?? before I use them again. Is there a place on the web that will walk me through this? Thanks
