low level formatting clears absolutely everything
but, if you say you dont' know much about windows nor linux, then i assume you definetaly dont' know much about low level formatting ... unless your using an old AT drive that is 504MB (528MB) which can be done more so without problems ...
i would not suggest that you even attempt doing that .... and it may be just a mistake by you saying that, but if it isn't then dont' do it unless your absolutely sure .. and make sure you use the proper utility supplied by the manufacturor of the drive ...
in the end i just wanted to clearify this with you, but it could be just a typing mistake and you may of actually meant to say high level formatting
sometimes called OS formatting
