Windows 7: HDD Partitioning

HDD Partitioning

I have a second hard drive that is taking like a minute longer than usual to format.(i know its not that long but it is out of the ordinary) I also tried making a small 10gb new simple volume and it takes just as long to format than as it does the whole drive. My other hard drive(500gb) formats really quick and its a little bit faster of a hard drive than the 320 but the 320gb hard drive used to format almost as quick as the 500gb. I have done all the tests possibe on the drive and it passes every time. Am i just being paranoid or should i just not use it cause it could be taking a shit?

When you were creating new volume did you unchecked the Quick Format option?
