By default Windows prevent the use of NTFS file system to format your USB flash drive.
Still it is very useful to store large files, as FAT32 limits the size of files (stored) to 4 GB.
- We can still put it into NTFS:
- Just format your USB key in FAT32, then type the following line in the MS-DOS:
convert X: /FS:NTFS /NoSecurity
- (Replace X: with the letter corresponding to your USB drive.)
- It will put your USB key in NTFS.
- You can use GParted on Linux to format your USB drive to NTFS.
