|I am trying to reformat my hard drive on my old laptop to give to my son. When I put the recovery disc that came with the laptop to do this, there are three options:|
1) RECORVERS C:DRIVE ONLY . This formats C:drive and restores the contents of my hard disk to its original state. Nothing will be performed to D:drive and te volumes of C: and D:drives will not be changed. Now, D: drive is my floppy drive. that is the drive that the recovery cd is in.
2) RECOVERS BOTH C: AND D:DRIVE
This formats both C: and D:drive. Then restores the contants of my hard disk to its original state in C:drive. the data on my hard disk will be completely deleted. This also says "C: RECOVER (30GB) D: FORMAT
3) FORMATS HARD DISK AND CREATES NEW PARTITION
This formats whole hard disk and creates new partition. Then restores the contents of my hard disk to its original state in C:drive. the data urrently stored on my hard disk will be completely deleted.
Can anyone help me figure out what I am supposed to do here? I just want to reformat the entire hard drive. I don't want a partition (at least I don't think I do)
