    My brother told me about a program that will go through my 4 hard drives and erase all of the non-microsoft programs, ultimately thoroughly cleaning out my computer like a reformat.

    I have a 2001 Dell server with 4 scsi hard drives and I honestly don't know how to reformat anything passed the "C" drive.. If there is such a program, please let me know about it or if there's another way, I.E. a full walkthrough... that would be much appreciated!!! thanks!

    don't mess with stuff like that, you can just open My Computer and right click the drive letter and choose format, but you might have to be in Safe mode if there are programs installed that may be running.

    * or Right click "My computer" and choose manage... then under "Storage" >Disk management...right click the drive letter and choose format.

    * Be sure to use NTFS file structure.

    It is more complicated when you format the C drive ( where operating system is installed).
