    Partitioning, Formatting and Reinstalling in Windows 98

    (Page 1 of 5 )

    Formatting and reinstalling windows 98 is very easy if you have the right know-how.This article will discuss how to format, partition and reinstall windows 98 on your PC.

    Before going ahead and doing this, it is important to be comfortable with the terms format, partition and file systems.

    Formatting creates magnetic markers, which define sectors where the data is stored.

    Basically you might want to format your hard drive if you are experiencing constant problems with your operating system. Another reason could be to clean out the registry, which gets clogged up over time by installing programs (and spy ware and third party software which get installed without your knowledge).

    It's also a good idea to format your hard drive if you are upgrading to a new operating system.

    Partitioning is the process of dividing the space available on the hard disk into blocks.
    One reason for partitioning is that it helps in organizing the data.

    I.e. lets say you have an 80 GB hard disk drive. You can partition it to organize data into various categories like a drive for your Windows and system files and for your personal work. You can then have another separate drive for storing the rest of your programs.

    You can even have one more for storing all your multimedia files, and maybe even one for storing backups of all your important files.

    Before going ahead and partitioning a drive it is important to understand how partitions actually work.
