Should the progress indicator show anything after 5-10 minutes? How long should I expect for a 40G or 80G volume?

Yes, the percentage did change, depends on what kind of hard disk you have. I've tried it take several hours (5 hours as I remember, my PC very slow) to format 40GB.


About the same here, 4 hrs 50 minutes.


So we have the 5 second quick format and the 5 hour surface scan format. What is the Win9x format command doing that gets me a moderately thorough surface scan/format in 23 minutes? That's the goal here.
