Do you have a specific question?

Re: low formatter

Here is the question:

 

How to low-level format a virtual disk?

 

Remember: you don't access physical disks!


Hope this helps!

Re: low formatter

ok

 

but if you want to low-lever  format  all the disks in a disk group, is possible?
if yes, how?

Re: low formatter

You only have access to vdisks, these are virtual disks.

What do you want to achieve?

Hope this helps!

Re: low formatter

There are many related threads in this forum.

 

Most recommend several cycles of uninitialize/initialize the array.

 

So uninitialize it, initialize it, create a diskgroup, some vdisks, then unitialze it. Repeate this. Nobody will be able to restore useful data.


Hope this helps!

Torsten.
