Just run your cmd as administrator;
First step : diskpart
Second step : list disk
third step: select disk “xxx”
[ Don’t use " symbol there is a number given to each disk connected to the pc use the number of you USB]
4th step: clean
5th step: create par primary
6th step: format fs=ntfs quick [if you want full format don’t use quick]
7th step: assign
You’re done.


First (Using CMD):

(It’s already mentioned @Kronos & I had posted it while ago Here let me make more clear)

  1. Connect USB drive or other devices that you need to format to your PC.
  2. Press Win + R to open the “Run” dialog, type: cmd and hit Enter to open Command Prompt.
  3. Select “Run as Administrator”, type: diskpart and hit Enter.


  1. Type: list disk and hit Enter to display all disks on your computer.
  2. Type: select disk 2 and hit Enter. ( 2 is the drive letter of your USB.)
  3. Type: clean and hit Enter.


  1. Type: create partition primary and hit Enter.
  2. Type: format fs=fat32 or format fs=ntfs quick and hit Enter to reset USB drive to FAT32 or NTFS.


  1. Type: assign and give your USB drive a new drive letter. Then type: exit to finish the process.

After this, you’ll be able to use your USB drive to save and store new data again.

2nd (Using Tool):

Step 1: Select the USB drive to format.

Connect the USB drive or pen drive to your computer. Download and launch EaseUS partition software. Right-click the USB drive you intend to format and choose “Format”.

Step 2: Set the drive letter and file system.

Assign a new partition label, file system (NTFS/FAT32/EXT2/EXT3), and cluster size to the selected partition, then click “OK”.

Step 3: Check the warning box.

Click “OK” if you see the Warning window. If you have important data on it, back up the data in advance.

Step 4: Apply the changes.

Click the “Execute operation” button first, and then click “Apply” to format the USB drive.

After this, you’ll be able to use USB drive for storing data and back up fancy data and important personal documents now.

3rd (Using Tool):

1. Download, install and run it on your Windows PC. Right click the flash drive and choose “Format Partition”.

2. In the pop-up window, choose “FAT32” file system. And you also can specify “Cluster Size” under file system if you need to. Then, click “OK”.

3. After that, it will go back to the main interface. Preview the virtual result and click “Apply” > “Proceed” after your confirmation.

The formatting progress won’t take you too much time. Of course, the more data on your flash drive, the more time the formatting will take.
