Re: Formatting Worries
What made you have to re-format it 3 times?
It won't damage the hard drive though, no. Formatting is basically erasing blocks of data, telling the drive where everything is. The data is STILL there, but unreadable by an OS.
KillDisk on the other hand, writes blocks of data to the hard drive, erasing what is there, and is a good option like Jackson.Mackenzie says to make sure your drive is completly clean of problems. This again, doesn't damage the hard drive, because hard drives are built to write over and over again.
