Format

All partitions should contain one or more specific kinds of file systems for storing data. The process of installing a file system is commonly known as formatting. This section explains how to format an existing partition.

The program provides the ability to format partitions into the following file systems:
FAT12
FAT16
FAT32
NTFS
ReFS
Ext2
Ext3

To format a partition:
1. Select a partition. 
2. Right-click it and Select Format.
3. Type the label you want in the Partition Label text box. 
4. Select the file system type to be created from the Partition Type drop-down list. (FAT/FAT32, NTFS, ReFS and EXT2/EXT3)  
5. Choose the Cluster Size (512 byte,1,2,4…64KB) from drop-down list. 
6. Click OK when ready. All the introduced changes to the disk layout will be pended until applied in Pending Operation List.

Tips:
◆ Smaller cluster size makes less wasting of disk space.          
◆ Partition formatting operation destroys all the data on this partition, including files and folders! Take special care when performing this operation.
