Any DRIVE Formatter 2.0.6
A software which will detect portable drives on your system and will allow you to format them.
At the first glance, the application is nothing different from the built-in Windows tool that allows you to format drives, but it does a lot more than that.
According to the developers, the program has been developed to provide an alternative format solution, as the Windows feature may fail to complete the job on some faulty drives.
Since a full format can also repair USB flash drives problems and restore capacity, Any DRIVE Formatter can very well be considered a tool supposed to repair corrupt or damaged drives.
The main window is the element however that may disappoint advanced users because it provides absolutely no configuration option. You only have to choose the drive to format, the volume label to be used after the format and use quick format.
Which means that Any DRIVE Formatter offers exactly the same tools as the standard Windows tool, only that this lightweight solution seems to be a bit more effective.
The format is usually completed in just a few seconds, but this also depends on the size of your drive. It doesn’t require administrator privileges on Windows 7 and can be used on any Windows workstation out there.
All things considered, Any DRIVE Formatter is a handy piece of software, although advanced users may expect more configuration options. It’s still a decent replacement in case the standard Windows tool fails to format your disk.
