of the times we are able to format the Pen drive but sometimes even
after formatting the virus is still present in Pen Drive or the Pen
Drive does not gets formatted.So here I am sharing three ways to format
virus Infected Pen Drive or Memory Card i.e micro SD card.
Format Virus Infected Pen Drive or Memory Card.
Three Way to do so are:
Go to Windows >> Run in Windows XP,7 and Vista. Windows 8 users press Windows + R on keyboard
Now type “cmd” and press enter.
Now in the DOS window (Black Colour Window) which opens up type ” FORMAT F ” without Inverted commas. (hereFis the drive letter of my pendrive/memory card)
If the above does not work try this one . This always works.
PRESS WINDOWS KEY AND GO TO RUN
TYPE cmd AND PRESS ENTER
NOW IN THE DOS WINDOW(BLACK SCREEN) TYPE THE FOLLOWING
“FORMAT X: /FS:FAT32 /Q /V: PenDrive” (here x is the drive letter of my pendrive/memory card..and write without quotes AND DO NOTGIVE SPACE BETWEEN “V: AND PENDRIVE” HERE I GIVED SPACE BECAUSE IT WAS TURNING INTO A SMILEY)
This is the third way to Format a Virus Infected Pen drive or Memory card.
Use a Linux Box
solution to format virus infected pen drive is to insert it into a PC
on which Linux is installed and then format it on that PC only. Since
Linux systems are unaffected by viruses so you will be able to format
virus infected Pen Drive or Memory Card.
you put a virus infected pen Drive in a Linux system and then open it
you will be able to see all the content including the viruses. If you do
not want to format the Pen Drive you can delete the viruses.
Hope this helps you in Formatting your Virus Infected Pen Drive or Memory Card
