Need of formatting Sony VAIO E Series computer
There can be various needs for formatting the system. If your system is not working at all or if your system has stopped responding then in such a case you have to format the system. If the system is infected by the virus or any other malicious code and it cannot be removed by using the antivirus software then you have to format the infected drive so that the virus can be removed from the system. Sometimes if the hard disk crashes and it cannot be repaired then you have to format the system. Even sometimes installing some of the application programs needs formatting to be done so that they can be used efficiently.
Consequences of formatting
The main consequence of formatting is that the data, files, software and application program will get deleted. The drivers that are installed on the system will also get deleted. With the formatting, some of the memory space gets used and hence there is wastage of memory space. If you perform a low level formatting then some of the data remains intact and hence some of the memory space gets wasted. Some of the files of the operating system are scattered over the drive and it becomes very difficult to reinstall the operating system if you format the computer system.
Before formatting the drive you have to keep back up of the data, files and other important documents that are stored in the system as formatting deletes all the data. Back up can be taken by using the recovery disk or restore feature of the operating system that is provided by the Microsoft windows operating system. While installing the drivers for the hardware keep a back up of the drivers which can be then used after the formatting of the drive. After formatting the system you have to check that the operating system that you are going to install on the system is compatible with the system.
