  1. Once the drive is transferred to the new system and you are sure you got all your data off of it, then format it.
  2. Simple as that just re format it like when you get it when its new great that was simple

  4. Changing the subject a bit. Are those WD 1TB Blacks noisy? Compared to WD Blues?
