Samsung Format Utility 1.4

Small-sized and portable utility for formatting Samsung external hard disk drives in normal or quick mode, using low system resources
Samsung Format Utility is a lightweight and portable application that provides formatting options for extenal Samsung hard drives.

It is very simple to work with, even if your experience with software programs is limited.

Since installation is not a requirement, you can drop the executable file somewhere on the hard disk and click it to run.

It is also possible to move Samsung Format Utility to a USB flash drive or similar storage unit, in order to run it on any computer with minimum effort.

An important factor to take into account is that the Windows Registry does not get new entries, and files are not left behind on the hard disk after removing the utility.

The inteface of Samsung Format Utility is represented by a regular window with an intutive layout, where you can select the Samsung device, choose the drive to format, select the file system type, as well as write a volume label. The task can be carried out in normal or quick formatting mode, depending on how much time you have at hand. There are no other options available through this tool.

Samsung Format Utility finishes a job quickly while using a pretty low amount of CPU and RAM. It has a good response time to commands and doesn't cause Windows to hang, crash or pop up error dialogs. We haven't encountered any difficulties in our evaluation. All in all, Samsung Format Utility serves its purpose, delivering quick solutions when it comes to formatting external Samsung HDDs.
