I'm going to wipe my N II and started wondering about the files system format vs the HD format.
I know what formatting an HD will do but what about the files system?
Does firmware get wiped with one or the other?... or both?
The User guide doesn't mention either and hoped there was an explanation somewhere.
Does anyone know?
Thanks!

Firmware is stored on its own flash, not on the HD.

Formatting the File System is a "Fast Wipe", the HDD is "Long Wipe", or whether we just empty the file table vs. actually starting from bare disk.

Makes sense... thanks!
