Formatting Disks

To use a floppy disk or other magnetic media, it must be formatted or initialized for the computer on which it will be used. A Mac OS computer can format disks for three different computer platforms:

  • Mac OS—for Macintosh and Macintosh-compatible computers.

  • MS-DOS—for Intel-based computer systems, including systems running Microsoft Windows and OS/2.

  • ProDOS—for old Apple II computers.
