      Hello,

      I am currently using Antix 23. I am getting this error when trying to format a 32GB USB to Fat 32 using the Format USB app. I remember being able to do this with Antix 21.3 . Am I missing something? Thank you

        I just want to add that I was able to format the USB with GParted, but still not able to with Format USB

          Hi gtick 440
          can happen, usually on drives which have not been unmounted, i.e just unplugged.
          A defective data bit or no write is set by the drive controller.

          antiX tool is a fast format which minimizes cell wear on usb devices. Gparted is more
          powerful at cost of writing all memory on drive which accelerates wear.

            Xunzi,

            Thank you for the explanation. That explains why it is hit or miss with Antix tool. Thanks!
