What Does Format Mean and What to Do Before Formatting

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 data 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 USB 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.
