Hello- i have a 16gb flash drive, and after installing Portable Apps on it, windows belives it needs to be formated and when i try to formate it (i've tried FAT32, NTFS, and exFAT) it gets to the very end(where it writes the system files) and then errors out saying windows can not format this device. any ideas?

Thanks!

P.S. i don't care about keeping the data intacked

I suggest you to use a usb flash drive format tool or try to format using Partition manager software. but check first on your flash drive company official site and find there any format tool available or not. normally all company provide that type of to on its site.

I don't know how you format it (maybe manually). You can try like right click on my computer> manage and click on disk management. from here try to format it.

try insert in another computer to see if it will work normally. otherwise your flash drive may suffer corruption. Then choose some repair tool to fix it.

I agree with mjack if the flash drive doesnot work in another computer then your flash drive may suffer from Corruption.
