I would be grateful if anyone could advise on formatting Portable HDDs.
I want to format my Iomega USB 320GB HDD and have done internal HDDs before in Windows 7, but as it is a portable I have a few questions:-
Should I use the New "Simple Volume Wizard" in Disk Management, or simply right click on the HDD and select Format?
If I use the New "Simple Volume Wizard" in Disk Management:-
- Allocation Unit Size - Is "Default" OK?
- Volume Label - Is the default "New Volume" OK if I don't wish to name it?
- Enable File & Folder Compression - Should I leave unchecked, so not enabled?
It will be NTFS. Many thanks for any replies.
