May I add that this options *destroys all data* on your device:

    Never use the -w option on a device containing an existing file
    system.  This option erases data!  If you want to do write-mode testing
    on an existing file system, use the -n option instead.  It is slower,
    but it will preserve your data."

BOFH excuse #272:

Netscape has crashed
