I want to format unused space on a hard drive. However the Quick Format option gives me the following warning:
"Warning: Formatting will erase ALL data on this disk. To format the disk, click OK. To quit, click cancel."
I assume that Disk Administrator (Windows NT 4.0) means partition and not disk, but as it's been so long since I last formatted a partition I thought I had better ask first...

The Operating System on the machine is Windows NT 4.0??


Before doing anything can you post a screenshot showing the Disk Manager expanded so we can see the all disk please.
