If you plan to continue using the wiped drive, you have the choice to use the "Quick Format" option, which will be a faster choice but offers less security. A quick format will not remove any of the data, it just will remove the means of identifying where the data is stored, letting it all be overwritten as the drive is used. If you want to be sure the data on the drive is erased completely, do not check the "Quick Format" option.

According to Microsoft Support , in Windows Vista and all newer versions, the format tool will erase data by overwriting it with zeroes. Here you'll see your drives and their partitions.

Don’t Format the Drive! (Yet)

Right click on the drive or partition you want to format, and select "Format". Again, note that a quick format is not as secure as a normal format. If the drive you want to wipe is where your Windows 10 operating system is installed, you won't be able to format it using the above steps. Instead, you'll need to perform a system reset not to be confused with restarting your computer.
