There are many reasons why we need to format a hard drive. For example, you may have bought a new computer and would like to give your old hard drive to a friend or colleague, and as a result, you need to format the hard drive to protect your privacy.

Or, you installed a new drive, it needs to be formatted before we can use it. The reasons to format are plenty!

Email has become deeply ingrained in nonprofit operations. Internal communications are often accomplished more by email than by phone or face-to-face meetings. Communications with external constituents, donors, partners, and other organizational contacts are perhaps even more dependent on email. Calls and meetings are scheduled by email; decisions are made based on email correspondence; inquiries, proposals, and contracts are sent by email; communications both mundane and critically important are these days handled by email more than by any other medium.
