Installing a Second Hard Drive
I have installed a few drives in my time. But something I do not understand has happened in drive manager in Win 7.
Obviously I have to initialise a new drive before I can format and partition it, but when I go to initialise another box comes up and identifies the new drive and asks to I want to partition it with MFT tables?? Not seen that before I obviously dont want to move any boot partitions from my C drive.
I have drive C with hidden boot partition, main active system partition and a data partition (logical).
The new drive will be E, is 1TB and I want to partition into 4 logical drives. I know how to do it, query is what is the box that comes up and asks whether I want MFT or another version?? Is it safe to say OK.

The MFT is Master File Tables, It keeps all the Data about the Drive in such as allocation and such It is Used in the NTFS Format, no idea why it is popping up on you Though.
So i would Say yes to allowing it as it holds all the data for where your files are.
A guess as to why it pops up is the size of the Drive and the type (Being 1Tb or Over), But Dont Quote me on that.
Anyway Let us Know if there is a Problem When Accepting.
