Basically, it formats it to NTFS quickly for a new installation.

If you were wanting to start from scratch though after installing Windows before, the standard is probably the best to get rid of everything.

But since its a new drive, the Quick is fine, and it only takes 5 seconds, instead of an hour with the standard
