Disk Format in Vista
Disk Format in vista takes longer time than other windows OS like XP and 2k.

Is there any technical reasons for this?

Re: Disk Format in Vista
Hi Mike,
Thanks for the reply and the link.

I am not talking about the hard drives..

I am checking with the flash cards. When I format my 1GB Usb Stick with Xp
OS it took just 5 Sec, and I tried to format same USB with vista OS it took
4 Min to Format.
