Do you need free SanDisk format tool?

Before you can store data on a SanDisk storage product, a USB flash drive, pen drives, memory cards or solid state drive (SSD), you must format it to a certain filesystem. Generally, an external storage device has a default file system, FAT32, which is the most compatible file system. However, there are times when you want to format your SanDisk products to another filesystem in order to store certain data on the certain device.

In Windows 10/8/7, you can use the built-in tool Disk Management, File Explorer, or DiskPart.exe to format SanDisk storage media, but they all have some limitations, like not being able to format drives larger than 32GB to FAT32 and lack the support of some file systems. Therefore, you need a professional SanDisk format tool for USB drives or internal hard drives.
