DISCWIZARD (English or Spanish):
Two or three months ago:
I remember that DiscWizard wrote in my unformattable hard disc the first time. Later, it appeared with 500 GB, one partition and formattable. Can anybody say the previous parameters of a "totally new HDD" without DiscWizard? I do not remember if it appeared with 0GB or not?
Is DiscWizard the traslator that writes SA?
Does DW format the HDD?, or only writes SA and MBR to create the partition?
(Seagate DiscWizard and Maxtor MaxBlast 5 are essentially same piece of software which is an OEM version of Acronis True Image 10 Home edition version 10.0.0.5077.)
Is there anybody that remember exactly these steps?
