FDISK format tools

  • FDISK is the oldest and most classic disk partition tool. Originally it is one kind of DOS program so it can only work in DOS. With FDISK, we can divide disk into one primary partition and multiple logical partitions. We need to format partition and allocate file systems for partitions after dividing. However, earlier FDISK has no format function so that partitioning and formatting need to be done step by step. That means more operations and more DOS orders. It's too hard for users who are not familiar with DOS orders and increases accidental operation rate. Therefore, with continuous developing, FDISK has been added with FDISK format tool besides FDISK partition tool. Recent FDISK has been improved in compatibility with operating systems, disk size, and partition size. Many users choose FDISK to manage partition.

    Upgraded FDISK

    After upgrading, FDISK has satisfied users' demands for partition management to some extent, but to control it well is not so easy. Take FDISK format tool for example,

    we need to input very long orders to format partition. Meanwhile, orders should be exactly right or it will cause troubles. Though FDISK format tool helps us format partition, it is too difficult for common users. It will take a long time to master FDISK format tool completely. "C:\format" is the simplest order of format tool. With this kind of way to format partition, we cannot set drive letter, file system, and cluster size, etc. It also takes very long time. It is strongly suggested to use MiniTool Partition Wizard that has graphical interface and simpler operation.
