How Ubuntu erase SD data completely



It is easy to remove the data on SD in Ubuntu. You have to follow some steps to format the data.

1.    Insert your SD card in card reader and recognized it and mounted by Ubuntu.

2.    To open the command prompt, you have to click the “Applications” menu at the top of the screen, then click “Accessories” and “Terminal”.

3.    You will have to type “df” and press “Enter”. A display will appear which will show the list of every storage device currently in use by the System. Locate the device name of your SD card similar to “/dev/sdb1”.

4.    You have to follow the device name that you found in step 1 then type “umount”

5.    Just type “mkdosfs –F 32 –v (device name)” and press e “Enter”.

6.    When the operation is completed then format and reconnect the SD card to remount it.
