Can format as much as you like... i believe you would be in-turn reducing the life of the hard drive only for the fact that you are writing to the drive so many amounts of time... i''m certain that only a certain amount of re-writing can be done , depending on the type of hard drive you have i guess

What problems are you having that you have to do this? We need to find the cause as this is not good. I have had my system for 6 years and due to major upgrades and OS updates gone wrong I have only formatted 4 times in that whole time.
We will need some more information
If this is a name brand system:
Age of the computer
Hard Drive Size, How much free space
If this is custom then We will need the following:
The CPU brand and model
The Motherboard brand and model
Ram amount and speed
Cd\Dvd rom interface IDE/ SATA
Hard Drive size and free space
Any cards in PCI slots
Any software installed\updated and driver updates done just before problem started
All this will help in determining a course of action to best correct the problem you are experiencing.
