    No, formatting cannot ruin a drive.

    And frankly, a Mac isn't like a Windows machine, while it can get some clutter it doesn't need all the "optimization" or even reformatting that a Windows machine occasionally does.

    OSX is essentially BSD with a pretty face, so many Unix rules apply.
