How To Format A USB Drive In Linux

You cannot find a usb disk formatter using these keywords. What you must search in the package manager is partition editor.

1.Open Add/Remove Programs or Synaptic.
2.Search for partition editor or manager, then install.
3.Open the partition editor and see what's available drives you have without the USB drive.
4.Put your USB drive, and determine what is the mount point or drive of your USB drive.
5.Select delete partition, then create partition and choose FAT32 for compatibility with windows machines.
6.Click Apply.
7.That's It! :)
