Wish to format my MY Passport Essential drive

Please excuse but I’m new to this forum.

Not happy with the backup software included on my Passport Essential. I wish to format the drive and use it as an external drive with Acronis True Image Home 2010. This is much better backup software in my opinion plus it is an image backup - will restore the entire system!!

Looks like I can do a regular format for this drive using Windows XP Pro - am I correct?

Appreciate any and all comments.

You should be able to reformat without any problem.
