Ok. Running XP, 3 hard drives (partitons), all NTFS. E:\ is 8 GB's and I want to reformate it, how do I do it and will it affect C: or D: (C:\ with the OS {XP Pro} on it).

Right click on the appropriate Partition, from the drop down select format.

You wont do anything to anything on any of the other partitions

P.S. the only real choice will be if you want to format to FAT32 or NFTS Fat32 will be backwards compatable if any other OS on the PC wants to have a look.

I know who you are - and don't you dare re-format it. I have told you that you not to do that and if you do, you will be banned from the computer. You have been warned.

Basil Pesto-What a name!?!? but to that anonymous person, the E:\ was extermly slow meaing backing up the files I needed and formating it would fix the problem (and it has been done).

P.S: Please do not try and patronise me. :)
