Formatting with Explorer
Need to format a floppy diskette quickly without using File Manager? Simply follow these instructions:
- Open Explorer.
- Scroll using the arrows in the left window pane view until you can select your desired floppy disk drive A or B.
- 3. Place your mouse cursor off Drive A or B, then right-click, and select FORMAT.
- 4. Windows 95 offers two options: QUICK (erase) which simply wipes the directory contents and formats the diskette the fastest, and FULL which takes the diskette down to bare bones and rebuilds the directory.
- 5. Select either to copy the system files making a bootable diskette or not, making a data diskette.
Note: A MacIntosh, a new diskette, or a diskette from a previous backup should be formatted using the FULL option.
