Question about Sony VAIO PCG-C1MRX PC Notebook
While formating the system you must be careful about a few points. First and foremost is to take the backup of the important data. You should have the Operating System, required software and especially Drivers of the system if you prefer to completely format the system. In this case, it is better to format the system (or C: drive) from windows setup and reinstall the Operating System, software and drivers etc.
From command prompt you can format the drives other than C: which usually has the operating system. The steps/ command to format the D: drive for instance are as under: -
1. Open Command Prompt.
2. Type C:\ and press Enter.
3. Type 'format D:
This will format the D: Drive and wip all the Data.
Alternatively, you can format the drives from the Windows Operating System by right-clicking the drive and choosing 'Format' to wipe the drive you wish to format. It is a safer method as it is visual as compared to DOS prompt. Please note that formating the drive will delete the data on that partition/disk.
Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.
Appreciate generously, if the solution could have been of any help!
