What is a Hard Drive Format? When to do it

A hard drive format is basically when the hard drive and all the information on it is deleted. This results in a blank hard drive with no information. The hard drive is the part in your laptop that stores all of the information, documents, pictures, music etc ready for when you want to see it. If this is formatted it will be wiped from the memory. Many people have done this by accident causing all manner of problems and lost memories. However the Hard Drive Format can be a good Laptop Repair to fix all manner of software problems.

If you have a corrupt operating system or the laptop is filled with viruses or you do just have a load of junk on the hard drive and you want to freshen up the laptop – the format can be a good thing to do. At Laptop Power UK we offer this service at two levels. The first is a straight format, the second is the format with a data recovery, which means all of the important information will be kept.

We will save anything you need keeping such as favourite pictures, documents, music and copy this to an external hard drive or data stick for you. The format will be done which wipes the hard drive clean and then a new operating system and all of the software necessary to run your laptop will be installed. Any data you wanted to keep can then be transferred back on to your laptop minus the software problems. It will be like you have just bought a brand new laptop! Call in store to speak to us about any of your laptop repairs.
