Formatting a Flash Drive
Reference Number: AA-00242 Views: 13966 Last Updated: 2014-11-26 10:53

Do I need to format my Flash Drive before using it?

Your Flash Drive comes formatted and ready to use right out of the box.  For most of the drives we supply the default format will be FAT32, which is compatible on all Windows, Mac and Linux platforms.

It may be useful in some cases when using Windows operating systems to reformat with NTFS, if you have a need to store files larger than 4GB.
