    Quick Format??

    tclark513 Level 3

      Does anybody have any opinions on using quick format?

       

      I have three new 1tb drives and it will take forever to format deep.

      Is there any draw backs to Quick Format?

       

      Thanks!

          I would take 'forever' to format these disks. It is only once you need to do it but I trust it more that a quick format. Formatting and creating a 12 x 1 TB disk raid30 is done in about 10 hours IIRC. So what? Let it run overnight.
