Windows wants to format itself [Image]

I wonder what would happen if ‘Format disk’ was clicked.

    [@Hamza] Really, any drive can be assigned as C:\, but it’s more likely to be something internal like a partition, another HDD/SDD, or an optical drive.

    I can’t believe how gullible those Redditors are, I thought they’re supposed to be geeks that seen it all.

    This happens because Windows is installed in a drive which has a letter different than C, and when the user connected a flash drive (or an external hard disk) Windows assigned the letter C for it.

    Unless it’s an error, how would a drive unrecognized by Windows boot in the first place? I have a feeling someone’s trolling and installed Windows in a different drive letter.

    What’s that box for in the first place? Windows asks the user to format the C drive?

  • What’s there to wonder about? You’ll have a nice clean drive to reinstall everything.
