Step 5: Now type the command as “Clean” and hit Enter. It will erase all the data from the pendrive.
Step 6: Now type the command as “create partition primary” and hit Enter. It will create partition primary in pendrive.
Step 7: Now type the command as “Select partition 1” and hit Enter. it will select the partition created in the last step.
Step 8: Now type the command as “format= fs ntfs quick” and hit Enter. it will format your pendrive quickly with NTFS file type.
