How to best format crucial 64gb real ssd

Hello

 

I need some advice as to the best way to format said ssd, so that there is no previous data (program and personal data) on there when I do a clean install of windows 7, reason for this I've purchased another ssd to now run windows 10, but certain things wont run in 10 so for the time being I need to have access to 7 to be able to use programs for particular pieces of hardware. Another reason for wanting to clean up the ssd, when I tried to update to 10 on this drive, upgrade program didn't like the file partition to perform upgrade for 10.

 

Thanks in advance

Run diskpart, select the disk concerned and then run the clean command. Then, when you run the Win7 setup, let it partition and format the drive automatically.
