I've got software to clear out a HD. According to the book the drive will have to be initialised and formatted before it can be used again. Where can I find info on how to do this? (The PC was bought from TIME.)

According to Belarc it's a Generic IDE HD - drive 0, no SMART driver.

In XP

My computer -right click- select manage.
Storage - Disk Management

In disk management right click your drive select Initilise and then format.
