Hye there,

its better you scan the pen drive to remove threats before you format it,
Normally these threats won't allow you to format the pen drive!

Update your anti virus and then on my computer, right click on your pen drive
Select scan using antivirus!
It will take some time, just wait until scanning if finished

if it's anything like my flash drive there should be a switch on it that can protect the data, keep you from formatting it, adding more files, and deleting files
