A quick one on partitions

Posted:
in Genius Bar edited January 2014
I've got a hard drive with two partitions, on for OS 9 and one for files & misc.



My OS 9 is corrupted, so I want to reformat the partition. Is it possible to ONLY reformat the OS9 partition WITHOUT touching the other one? There's too much stuff on it for me to backup.



Thanks



Jon

    well, it is not possible to reformat it, but you can erase it. start up from you Mac OS 9 CD (press "c" at Startup), the choose "Special" &gt; Erase HD. Of course you have to select the HD first.
