formating partitions

Post by Allan » Tue May 25, 2004 4:21 pm

I have read the documentation and understand that a partition must be present before restoration can occur. What is not clear is whether the partition must be formated or not. Can someone clear this up for me?

In my experience: No, you don not have to create a filesystem on the partition, just have the partition of the correct type, and of sufficient size. (But your mileage may differ.)
