WD was the last manufacturer of parallel ATA hard disk drives for laptops (2.5-inch form factor) and desktop PCs (3.5-inch form factor). Western Digital hard drives feature product names based on colors; these colors signify the characteristics of the drive: Green drives were energy efficient, with slightly slower performance; they have been discontinued. Blue drives are average performance. Black drives are high performance. Red drives are designed for NAS use. Purple drives are designed for surveillance data storage. Gold drives are designed for “datacenter” use.
Data on a Western Digital hard drive are not fully erased during every high-level format. Instead, the area on the disk containing the data is merely marked as available, and retains the old data until it is overwritten. the formatting operation may also create one or more new file systems. The first part of the formatting process that performs basic medium preparation is often referred to as “low-level formatting”. Partitioning is the common term for the second part of the process, making the data storage device visible to an operating system. The third part of the process, usually termed “high-level formatting” most often refers to the process of generating a new file system. In some operating systems all or parts of these three processes can be combined or repeated at different levels and the term “format” is understood to mean an operation in which a new disk medium is fully prepared to store files.
If the disk is formatted with a different file system than the one which previously existed on the partition, some data may be overwritten that wouldn’t be if the same file system had been used. However, under some file systems (e.g., NTFS, but not FAT), the file indexes (such as $MFTs under NTFS, inodes under ext2/3, etc.) may not be written to the same exact locations. And if the partition size is increased, even FAT file systems will overwrite more data at the beginning of that new partition.
