Default Maintenance

I have been told on 3 different occasions by Digi Tech support that you should initialize your internal HD (running Sys Fold & Pro Tools Application) every 3-6 months as regular preventive maintenance.And by not using low-level formatting option you will not destroy any authorizations you have installed. I have also been told by some veterans that running Norton "optimization" will give the same outcome.

Two questions: 1)Do I really have to initialize or can I run Norton? 2) If I have to initialize will it destroy authorizations? What about "challenge-response authorizations?

I would love to hear from some of you experienced users about your success or failure in this area.

Thanks in advance!
