Not as if this will help much since the post was in July....;-) but I'm searching for the same answer and would be appreciative if anyone could reply with anything. What made me post was chef's reply. "LLF"'ing in scsi is kind of a misnomer...most (all, really...but I don't want to get flamed if I'm wrong) newer scsi drives don't allow you to truly low level format. They instead write 0's to your drive to erase all user data. That goes without saying that unless you really need to get rid of the data on your drive---you don't need to do it. At the factory is the only LLF that will ever be performed on that drive...So yeah, the point is...if you can verify you should be in good shape. I am still very interested in an answer to this, as I am in the same boat.
