I installed sleuth kit but couldn't get the autopsy add-on.I tried under ubuntu the testdisk tool.No partitions found.Since i got tired i decided to format it via windows(the only OS that i was able to format it,it allowed only ntfs formatting and that's what i did).Then attached it to ubuntu to format it to msdos and format was successful.

Before i insert any data to it,i would like to ask if it is a good idea to format it under ubuntu?Would it be better if i just formated it under OBSD?

And generally what is your opinion about trusting this disk?should i consider buying a new one?If yes should i consider some specific brands since i won't it work well with OBSD,Linux and windows?
