A pen drive, a Flash drive, a thumb drive - whatever you call it and regardless of how big or small it may be, it is not a Hard Drive. Moreover it has no moving parts, it is solid state.

Thumb drives work more reliably if you just use a sensible, well designed, directory system.

I formatted one using a GPARTED live CD, discussed above. WIndows does not allow formatting a USB drive; Linux does, and the CD loads Linux with its partition program, GPARTED, into RAM on your computer.
