HP USB Disk Storage Formatting Tool Failed to Format the Device

"Hi, I have been using HP USB disk storage tool 2.2.3 in Windows 7. It's easy-to-use, and I like it very much. Lately, my laptop was upgraded to Windows 10, but when I tried to run the software to format a 64GB USB to FAT32, it went about 80% and then just said 'failed to format the device'. Quitting the software doesn't work, either. It seemed to be an incompatibility issue. Now I need a better alternative for HP USB disk storage formatting tool that can work perfectly in Windows 10. Any thoughts?"
