Question about Computers & Internet
If you are running DOS(Command prompt) in Windows, your windows Operating System is installed in C drive and is Up and running then it is impossible to format the C drive because the whole thing is running in C drive and windows won't allow you to do so.
But if you are using a separate DOS O.S. and want to format C drive and If you want to format any other drive than c drive when your system is up and running then you can use the FORMAT command followed by the drive letter that you want to format.
here is an Examle to write in DOS..
Format C: /q
you can replace the C letter by any drive that you want to format. The /q Option is use to perform Quick Format. Here is a list of mostly used Option
Formats a disk for use with Windows.
FORMAT volume [/FS:file-system] [/V:label] [/Q] [/C] [/X]
"volume" Specifies the drive letter "/FS:filesystem" Specifies the type of the file system (FAT, FAT32, exFAT, NTFS, or UDF). "/V:label" Specifies the volume label. "/Q" Performs a quick format. "/C" volume will be compresse by default. "/X" Forces the volume to dismount first.
Hope this will help for sure.....cheers:)
