Does formatting damage your hard-drive?
I've had a few problems with my new computer, audio doesn't work, nvidia drivers installed wrong etc, I suppose they're 'teething problems', so I've had to format my hard-drive 3 times since christmas (it's easier to start fresh than to sort out the mess).
My dad keeps saying I will damage my hard-drive. Is this true?
I know excessive formatting will eventually damage it, but not after 3 right?
