LaCie 1TB external HD & formatting

  exdragon 16:48 11 Nov 2009

Hi - I've got the above mentioned drive and see in the manual that it should be formatted. Is this really necessary? I just plugged it in and off I went. Seems to be coping with my Acronis back up without any problems.

If it is working fine, then I would leave it as it is.

Thanks, Technotiger - a friend has the same drive and was worrying about having to format it, but I guess it's ok. Well, it is for me, let's hope it's the same for her!
