Case 1. "I have bought a new Patriot USB. Yesterday, when I was trying to use it, there pops up a box. It reads - You need to format the disk before you can use it. I followed the Windows guide and formatted my new USB. However, I still can't use it! So wired!" 

Case 2. "My USB drive is saying it is not recognized and needs to be formatted. The wired thing: I just bought it a months ago and I did format it before saving photos to the Patriot USB."

Case 3. "I plugged my USB drive into the port of a PC, right-click the disk icon and select 'Format', but it popped up an error saying 'Windows was unable to complete the format'. I think I need a tool to help me!"

What Does Format Mean

To format a drive (hard disk, floppy disk, flash drive, etc.) means to prepare the chosen partition on the drive to be used by an operating system by deleting all of the data1 and setting up a file system. The most popular file system to support Windows is NTFS but FAT32 is also sometimes used.

Before You Start Formatting

Make sure that you already backed up the data stored on your flash drive. If you haven't done so and the files stored inside are important to you, try using a data recovery software to see if it helps. Just connect your USB drive to the PC, then let a recovery program scan your USB drive to seek any recoverable items.
