Formatting in FAT32 in Windows Vista

Today I was looking for a how to format a disk in FAT32 in Windows Vista and came across this simple tip. You can simply open the run command and type the following there:

format [drive letter]: /FS:FAT32

So if the drive you want to format is drive E: you simply type in format E: /FS:FAT32. This will open a new window where you’ll be asked to confirm the operation. After that all you need to do is wait a little.

If you don’t have a lot of time to wait you can also add the /q command to do a quick format.
