What is the difference between Quick Format and Full Format?

Quick Format is just a way to make the formatting process quick, the drive will not check for bad sectors. Although after Quick Format, we can not see any of the files from this partition or drive, but the files still exist and just wait for being overwritten by some new data. In this situation, we still have the chance to recover deleted files after Quick Format.
The screenshot as below is showing how to perform a Quick Format.

Full format runs a deeper step to check every bad sector of the hard drive, this process will make longer time than Quick Format.Also, a Full format completely wipes your hard drive, which means there shouldn't be any recoverable data left for a program to access.
The screenshot as below is showing how to perform a Full Format.

We therefore suggest you perform a Quick Format first because of there's still have a chance to roll back with a data recovery software if we wrongly formatted our important data. Whenever you are surely that the partition can be cleaned completely, then you can perform a full format. Normally if we would like to sell or donate our computer to others. To protect our privacy, we always perform a full format on the hard drive before selling out.
