I have a 250GB SATA hard drive and 2 questions. 1. Is it still safe to use these? I know there is a stealth bin file that m$ CAN scan, but from what I understand, they have let it go for a while. 2. Can someone point me to a TUT on how to properly format it and where I can find the tools. I have a laptop and no USB to SATA cable. I understand I will probably have to get one.
