    Hi
    i downloaded a trail version of Acronis Disk director , and it has a fomat feature , but it's very fast format (to format a 250 giga it takes some seconds)


    i need a tool that let me format hd or partition via dos with a bootdisk, ( i know i have the original XP cd , but i don't like to use the xp cd)

    i would appreciate some advises :D

    It would be best to get the disk for what ever your HD is directly from their site.

    Yes I see what you`re saying but the disks I get from the Maxtor site (I have Maxtor Drives) will do all that...it`s called MaxBlaster2 I think it is.

    Yeah you can boot with it and reinstall your HD if you wanted to. Yes you can use it on other HD`s as long as one of the HD`s is a Maxtor.
