Formatting External HD to FAT32


Recommended Posts

I need to format my External hard drive back to FAT32 (it's 1.5T).


Googled and tried through command: didn't work. Tried with some program called Swissknife: only allowed FAT16.


1) Now I ended up finding and using this FAT32 Formatter: http://www.ridgecrop.demon.co.uk/guiformat.htm but it did it in less than 2 minutes (tried it a few times, always the same). I can't help but feel suspicious as to why it was so short. Seems to be working okay but is it possible it hasn't been done properly and might cause problems further down the line?


2) If 1 is indeed shit, then what could/should I use?
