Today we’ve got a short video for you showing you how to format a hard drive from within Disk Utility in OSX Leopard.
This text will be replaced
First, navigate to Disk Utility in your Applications -> Utilities Folder. Then click on the drive you’d like to format, and click on the erase tab.
You’ll likely want to choose OSX Extended Journaled here. Journaling is where OSX keeps a record (or journal) of all your actions. In the event of a crash, the OS can use this in helping to recover your system.
Choose whatever name you’d like for your new disk. This can be changed at any time.
Don’t Erase Date – This is an insecure method to erase your data. With this option, bits of your data will remain on your hard disk and could be recovered by a Data Recovery program.
Next click Erase, then Erase again. Your new drive is formatted and ready for use.
