Format procedure when we use HDD made in Lacie in Mac



When we format and work, it may follow that data which  customer valued by one operation disappear.
 As we cannot take any responsibility even if we do data erasing which we operated, work, please carefully.

 We remove all the contents of HDD, and "format" (initialization) is to make information state to be able to write in.
 When hard disk drive (HDD) does not work normally and is ineffective even if we try other restoration means,
 We may have to format HDD.
 In addition, it is necessary to format HDD when we build more HDDs which are not formatted.
 All the data are removed when they format. We will back up data by all means before formating.

 When there is not recognition in management of disk that I hear a sound being formating, and stopping abnormally or disk utility program
 I am sorry to cause trouble very much, but repair in conformity with guarantee regulations.
