Formatting a Floppy Disk

Before you can use a disk for the first time, it must be formatted. Formatting is a process that divides the disk into segments that the computer uses to store (and later, to locate) data on the disk.

Most disks you buy today are already formatted, but you might want to reformat a disk to erase its contents or to check for errors on the disk.
