This program was designed by HP to format their HP Drives and DiskOnKey USB devices. However, HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool can format any USB flash drive in mere seconds. It can work with FAT, FAT32 and NTFS files systems. Perhaps one of the program’s best features is its ability to create DOS startup disks that help you turn on a damaged computer. And let’s not forget that the tool is completely free and also portable. You can store it on your flash drive or other removable media and take it with you anywhere you need to use it.
The program has a size of under 100 KB. The DOS recovery disk it creates is able to boot your computer and lets you perform advanced recovery and repair procedures. However, the program allows its users to create FAT32 volumes that are larger than 32 BG.
Also, with this tool you can format drives that cannot be formatted by the Windows operating system. It can, of course, completely wipe a drive of all data – including malicious code.The only problem encountered was the fact that the program required administrator permissions to run correctly.
