Re: [vox] [OT] unformatting a FAT partition?

mark, i feel a little dumb for asking this, but i what does it mean to
unformat a fat partition?

do you mean reformatting using a different filesystem?

or writing random bits below the filesystem level so that address
information on the platters is lost as well as data?
