Hi, i went to format a slave hdd on my computer. I right clicked the hdd under "My Computer" clicked format, and theres one option i am confused on. the "Enable Compression" check box. What does that do? and since the file is its own hdd, why need it? Also, once its formated and since its already listed in "My Computer", do i need to add it as a partition, or is it already one, or is it not but dont need to add ap partition anyway? All i plan on using it for is storage. Thanks for any help anyone can provide me, l8as.
