Hi Riley,

This is very easy command to format your pen drive,

You need to follow a few instructions which I have given below. You just type following command…

mkfs –t ext4 /dev/sda

“sda” is your device name, it can be sdb, sdc also.

Hi,

To format your USB device in Linux machine.

First, you must "unmount" the device but leave it plugged in. "Unmount" is equivalent to "Safely Remove     

Device" in windows .To unmount, use command

 umount /dev/sdf

 Once the device has been unmounted, execute the format.

 mkfs.vfat /dev/sdf

The device will be formatted, and then you can remount the device eventually.

Best Regards,
