6. Low Level Formatting

Low Level Formatting is the earliest step in making the hard drive ready for data storage and retrieval (this is usually done at the factory).

Low level formatting usually remains unchanged for the entire life of the drive (unless the drive is re-formatted, usually as a last resort). [4,18]
