Hello -

I've been installing Win2000 for an application my company works on.  In windows 2000, when formatting a partition it gives you the option to "quick format" - is there an advantage or disadvantage or potential for trouble if using the quick format vs. regular?

Thanks,

T

No, if the disk is OK there is no problem with the quick format.

tomeb1,
According to Microsoft:
The difference between the regular format versus the quick format is whether or not the volume is scanned for bad sectors using the chkdsk command. Both methods remove the files from the volume.
