People keep telling me that reformatting your hard drive is a good way to get an old pc running like new again. I'm a bit in the dark as to EXACTLY what doing so would entail what it would require and what it will do. I understand that most if not all of what is on my pc will be gone and am in the process of backing it up to a flash drive. I also have heard that the drivers will be gone but i have a hard copy of all the Drivers I'm aware of. How can i get a list of all the drivers i use? Any information would be helpful I'm not even sure how to do this or where to start or why i should.
Reformat Hard Drive
Yes it can make your PC as good as new but that also means your PC will loose all the data unless you know how to take a backup of all of them to a place where they are not effected by the PC format
Lykos like this
So a say flash drive or Compact disk would be a good back up? What more can you tell me about Reformatting?
