I have a new 3 TB hard drive that I would like to peform a full format on in Windows. Its my understanding that a full format will mark any bad sectors on the drive and will not use those sectors to store data.
However, this drive will not be used in Windows - it will be used as a backup drive for a Mac. If I quick format the drive again through the Mac OS, will the bad sectors that Windows possibly found during the full format still be "marked" as bad to the Mac OS? Or do I need to perform the full format of the drive on Mac for this benefit?
