Format – A procedure that readies a hard drive to store data. The locations of sectors is arranged by the low-level formatting just for the sake of saving user data in them. Usually most hard drives are already low-level formatted at the factory and need to formation from the user. And there is a need to do a high-level format using either EZ-Drive command or the Format command on the new hard drive in order to put it in use. The process of formatting removes all the data on a hard drive and it sets up the file system required for storing and retrieving files.
