I’m 100% sure this has PROBABLY been covered over and over but I ASSURE you I have not found MY answer so, please, bare with me.
I want to get rid of this crapware (I know I know, bare with me) but I’m a total ■■■■■ who doesn’t know **bleep**. I want to reformat the drive so it is literally blank and ready to have anything dragged and dropped into it.
Here’s my question- How exactly is this done? I don’t understand this FAT32 NTFS **bleep**. I just want to reformat it but also be able to simply plug n play. I use both Windows and OS X and it sounds to me like you have to be specific when formatting?
I just want it nuked and clean and ready to use on both OS X and Windows. Is this easy or very technical? Either way, can someone please explain to me in lamens terms on how to? I’m not a super geek, I know enough about computers to use them but, I’m not a super genious or even familiar with all these tech terms.
I run Windows 8.1 on an GX60 and OS X Lion 10.7 on a 2007 iMac, and thinking of getting the new Mavericks.
Not sure if this matters but what the heck.
Thanks again for understanding my situation and thank you again in advance for a reply. It took me literally an hour just to figure out how to post on this forum. Ridiculous lol.
*EDIT* Also, does removing the software have any negative effect? From my understanding it is all worthless but might as well ask. I just want to drag and drop my **bleep** on my external as a means of backup. That’s it. Games, movies, songs, pictures etc. I can easily take the time to organize folders and such myself. And the bleeps are not curses. It is the word children learn as an alternate to bowel movements lol. Just saying so no one is offended. NOT cursing.
