How to partition USB pendrive and removable devices, the definitive guide

In today’s tutorial, we will see how to partition USB pendrive and removable devices. 

If for various reasons you were so suddenly found in the obligation to partition a normal USB stick or any removable device, you will no doubt have realized that with the Microsoft Windows operating system it is not feasible to implement everything to due to the remotable bit set on the device. So how do we curb this problem? Let’s go find out together.

To solve the annoying problem once and for all, you can simply change the bit, so that the Redmond platform can easily recognize the device as local and not removable. The program that comes to your rescue is one of the most popular and therefore most used around, let’s talk about Lexar USB Format. The tool we are talking about is portable therefore this means no installation is required and can be easily used to configure the removable bit as best as possible or to format the USB stick or SD card or still make it bootable – just set the partition as Active and you’re done.

Please note that the tool can not be used to partition the USB device. In the case, we personally recommend you to rely on the disk management tool of Windows XP or Windows Vista or directly download the interesting software called GParted Live CD (it is released entirely free, available if you want as a live CD bootable from any computer – or yet another two very popular programs like Partition Magic or Acronis Disk Director that unfortunately are offered for a fee).
