Formatting the New Partition
In practice, all you really need to know about NTFS is that when youre prompted to format the system, you select the NTFS option. To select NTFS, press ENTER, and let the computer partition the hard drive. A status bar shows us the formatting progress (Figure 139).
The format program will also ask if you want to do a quick format or a full format. Select full format. That is usually the best option and also the default option Windows offers.
