Hi, I recently made some changes to my computer. I have windows installed on a new hard drive, and have my old main hard drive installed as a secondary drive for storage. The old drive still has all of the old windows install and other crap that I don't need on it, and I want to start fresh. Can I just format it from the "my computer" screen, or is this going to break something?

Thanks!

If you can't get that to work, you can also do it from the disk management area in Windows. Make sure you format the correct drive.
