Part 3: Disaster Relief: The Fix-Its > Format, Initialize, and Verify Disks

Fixit 28. Format, Initialize, and Verify Disks

QUICK SUMMARY

For floppy disks and SuperDisks, use the Finder's Erase Diskcommand to reformat the disk. For Iomega Jaz and Zip disks, typically use the Iomega Tools application. For most other media, especially hard drives, use a formatting utility (such as Drive Setup) to reformat the disk; launch the utility and click its Initialize orFormat button, as appropriate.
