I want to do a full format prior to doing a fresh install of vista. The option for formatting when installing vista, is only a quick format. How safe would it be for me to delete the partition then create a new partition before install. This gives you the option to first delete the partition. But how safe is it to do so??? I dont want to risk screwing up my pc to such an extent that I cannot put it right. Thanks in advance guys, I know I have come to the right place for the right answer.
