Explanation of Format Command
Here is a quick explanation of some of the switches you can use with the Format command on our boot disks. If you type:

format /?
you will get a list that includes the following switches:
  • /v:[label] - specifies new volume label
  • /q - quick format
  • /s - copies system files to disk (removed under Win ME)
  • /c - tests clusters that are currently marked bad
Here are more switches which are being separated because you will probably never need any of these:
  • /f:size - specifies the size of the floppy.
  • /b: - allocates space on the formatted floppy for system files
  • /t:tracks - specifies number of tracks per disk side
  • /n:sectors - specifies number of sectors per track
  • /1 - formats single side of floppy
  • /4 - formats a 5.25 inch 360k floppy in a high density drive
  • /8 - formats 8 sectors per track
