for you to recover it, as there still is, it has not been "zeroed". As a man 
who grown up with the BeOS and a guy who has suffered partition losing once or 
twice in a lifetime, that distinction is kind of important. Remember, 
developers are the first ones in testing the programs, and Haiku resembles the 
BeOS, where DriveSetup says "write" and "losing data"; in English, but it says
