Chapter 11. Computer Software > Formatting Diskettes

Formatting Diskettes

Though diskette drives are not used as often as in the past, there will be times when you'll want to copy files to a diskette for backup purposes or to move them to another computer. Before a diskette can be used, it must be formatted. Most diskettes come already formatted, but sometimes they do not, or sometimes you might wish to format a diskette to refresh it and erase all the files and folders on it. To format a disk, do the following:

  1. Place a diskette in the diskette drive.

  2. Right-click the Drive A icon (shortcut) on your Desktop.

  3. Click Format.
