Usually when you buy brand new hard disk from a computer shop, they will just perform a “Quick Format” for your hard disk.
Note: Normal format is also known as Default Format, Regular Format, Full Format or whatever you would like to call as long as it is not Quick Format.
You only perform Quick Format for the following reasons:
- You have performed full “Regular/Normal Format” before and now you would like to make clean hard disk.
- You want to quick erase all the data in the hard disk
