GParted is a LiveCD. No need to isntall it. So it can run just about anywhere that has a CD ROM. Why do i need to back up what i recommend? Jsut cause you dont know of hte software it has to be inferior? I dont think so. Use Google and you will find that GParted is the best formatting tool out there. I only said EricB and Warez because maybe you would have a little respect for those of us who put our time in the Windows forums and help out. Not just come around and make snide remarks about other people posts.
If you have such a problem with my remark why are you not in many of the topic after Eric who does the same thing??? Why did you single me out????
Your right this isnt a playground. So when you start to act more mature and show some respect to those of us who are here answering questions all the time maybe then i will respect your reamrks about a little more info.
But i will say the same thing as i do to many people. Use Google. I am not the only person who thinks GParted is the best out there. How have i not backed myself up? I have already stated it is a LiveCD. No need for any install. I have already said it can format to any file system out there. Which is way more than Disk Management can. which if you would have read he already tried.
from this XP i formatted the second one as NTFS primary, but when i double click on it in windows explorer i get "access denied"
in its properties i read: Filesystem = RAW (shouldnt it be ntfs??)
i tried to format the second partition twice, but i got the same thing.
So if trying to format twice within Windows has failed why not offer something which WORKS???? So again i ask why you singled me out and why you think a applicaiton which can do so much more than a simple little format, which apparently Windows couldnt do, to be so wrong???
No i am not upset. No i dont need a hug. I need people like you to buy a clue and stop trying to slam those of us who are giving our time to helping out others. Yeah so i get another warning. Ohh. I get a Ban. Ohh. But the truth is i have helped way more people around here and dont hang out in the Off Topic area.
