I wipe my drives clean using WipeDrive from time to time and then I've reinstalled Windows and re-activated. But I was wondering if I could save myself some time and hassle with an idea I had. What I was thinking is after I wipe my drives I could put the Disk Director CD in and run it from the CD. Then if Disk Director has a format utility in there I could tell it to format my first drive. Then after that is done, I could put the True Image Disc in and run that from the CD and then use that to restore my entire computer to the first drive from a backup image that I have on my external USB drive. I don't know if Disk Director has a format utility. But seems to me this idea should work.
