I have installed Windows 98 up date without saving Windows 95 files. I would like to clean off my hard drive but Windows 98 will not allow it. What can I do to format?

Wibaddog:

If you have kept your old Windows 95 startup disk that you made when you originally istalled windows 95, you have the utilities on that disk to boot your system (put the floppy in the drive and rebbot the system) From there you can run format by typing format c:/s at the dos prompt.

If you did not keep the startup disk, you can use the Windows 98 starup disk (or make another), but in 98 you will have to copy the file format.com from you windows system directory to the floppy.

Let me know how you make out!
