My Suggest for Formatting HDD

Don’t formatting your HDD. If you need to do it, you should at least backup it or backup important files. You know, it is a great habits to keep 2 or 3 copies of your important data in case you lose one copy someday. It is not wise to format HDD. Formatting may cause new computer erros.
