Hello Marius,

DriveSetup "writes" information to disks, but there is no 100% guarantee that it is "savely" written. Because of that, 
there always is a chance for you to "lose your data". Even though, if that happens, there theoretically is a chance 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 so.

How fast the Norwegian translation is going! Good work!


Thanks! I will preserve the distinctions then.
