I can see some of you folks are very comfy with the command line etc. Maybe use to working with dos or maybe linox where you have to do a lot of this stuff manually. Many of us are not so smart and used say xp for its ease of use.
I have seen that thingy in Windows 7 showing the drives. You can defrag from it too. Cant remember how I got to it now. But I was thinking, and this thread has me thinking more on it..
Cant I simply from right there. Tell it to reformat say my sataII drive with old Windows 7 install on it. I think from right there is a more deep format than just right clicking the drive from computer and quick format/partition etc. This thing has something like it in xp. I like it it seems more deep at defrag or reformatting. I think It should be more simple for us others just to tell it to reformat from there.
And if say defraggin. You can watch it move files around etc. Where the normal defrag deally- just says- step so and so, but can not see progress etc.
You guys are very helpful. Maybe you forget sometimes, Most of us are not at your level of expertise. The simple stuff and or click and go, is way more easy for most of us.. Ha ha I have not had to mess with dos stuff since flashing bios back in the 98 days or something. I always avoid the command line if I can. I think most people do.. That is why we buy windows or xp etc. We do not use linox and are not programmers etc..
I guess what I am saying is. Maybe 3/4 of folks are in my boat. WE do not have your skills or are afraid of the command line. We need more simple ways of doing these things, and tho it might not be as deep as using the command line methods.
This looks complicated to most of us less or normal folks. Maybe if I had another pc going or had a printer I could print extra instructions for certain things. Click and go or reboot etc. Is way more easy for the most of us..
Just saying is all..
