If you don't understand the reason for my (and NHDave's) posts regarding this advice perhaps you are posting on the wrong forum. Some of us believe that newbies should be protected from poor advice and aren't afraid of saying so.

I assume from your post that you think telling someone to reformat when it is clearly not required is okay.

No one said it was required, but it would solve their issues, right?

Yes, but the effort required to do so compared to the alternative is ridiculous. It's like having your engine rebuilt because you need an oil change.

Can you imagine some poor newbie getting that poster as the the first respondent and deciding to heed their advice? If you've ever reformatted and installed you know what is required...
