Reformating basically clears the drive of all file information. A complete format overwrites the drive with blank data where as a quick format just removes file information from the drive so an operating systems reads it as empty. Its pretty easy to do, within Windows you can right click the drive icon and goto format. If you do plan to reformat, make sure its not the drive you have Windows installed on, and make sure to have anything you want backed up.

My heart beat quickened and I nervously glanced at the walls. With widened eyes I witnessed the birth of the world as the walls began to breath and the floor swirled and rose into mountains and valleys. A new door was opened in my mind. One that will never again remain shut.
