Disk programming in Linux
HOWEVER, the same disk when i tried to format in Windows, it recovered fully and it was again capable of performing r/w operations.
So my queries now are:
1) How is the disk formatting operation different in Linux compared to Windows.?
2) Is it possible to create ext2/ext3 file systems in Windows?
Thanks In advance

For your first question, I think that Linux rebuild the whole filesystem on the selected disk/partition and windows just erase the datas on it.
For your second question, I think that some advanced partition managers like PartitionMagic (Partition Magic Download - Partition Software - Partition Hard Drive | Norton PartitionMagic) can do these partitions, but this will not be useful because I think that ms windows is only able to performs IO on dos, fat12/16/32, ntfs partition types.
