Flash Drives

Post by Ted Myers »

Hello, is it possible to partition a USB Flash Drive and format 1 as FAT32 & the other half as NTFS?
If it wasn't for bad luck I'd have NO luck at all.

Depends on OS and version, but the answer is yes (for removable media) in most recent versions.

Thanks Argus, the reason I asked was because I had FF 64 (bit) portable on a Sandisk in NTFS format. As I always use safely remove, it kept telling me it was still being used by Windows. I have a portable that fixes unremovable usb's but as I am on Win 10, it did'nt work, it did on Win7.
On Googling I found that a USB in FAT format would release easier. It never did. Now I use Task Manager to end it.
If it wasn't for bad luck I'd have NO luck at all.
