USB flash drives are widely used nowadays as a primary method of storing and transferring data, as they are convenient to carry around and universally supported by computers and many other devices. As you probably know, you can format them and erase all the data they contain by using the default functions and utilities that operating systems like Windows provide. Anyway, formatting them is not useful only to quickly and effectively get rid of all the data they contain, but it’s also useful for other purposes, such as repairing them (isolating bad disk sectors and correcting partition errors), removing virus infections, or changing their default file system (FAT, NTFS, etc.).
The “USB Disk Storage Format Tool” is a simple and lightweight utility that offers a better alternative for formatting a USB drive than the default system’s disk formatting function. This neat application allows you to quickly format a USB Flash drive using any of these four file systems: NTFS, FAT, FAT 32 and EXFAT. It even allows creating a FAT32 volume larger than 32 GB, which wasn’t possible using other tools or methods.
This handy tool can also scan the drive for errors before formatting using the acknowledged “check disk” function and correct errors if found. It also provides various information about the connected flash drive.
To sum it all up, USB Disk Storage Format Tool offers a really handy, fast and convenient manner to format USB flash drives. Furthermore, it’s free.
