    "Crashed at first but worked in the end (in XP SP3)."

    July 16, 2010  |   By jstew82

    Version: CompuApps SwissKnife V3 3.22

    Pros

    Can create Fat32 partitions greater than 32gb offered in windows. Interface is simple and intuitive.

    Cons

    Crashed at first when I clicked on my usb hardrive. I had to first format the drive using fat32format.exe (http://www.ridgecrop.demon.co.uk/index.htm?fat32format.htm) before swissknife worked (so I didn't need swissknife in the end..)

    Summary

    CompuApps need to fix the bug that causes it to crash. Once fixed this is a suitable program to create large Fat32 partitions.

    "Works Great!"

    July 3, 2010  |   By Laserman2010

    Version: CompuApps SwissKnife V3 3.22

    Pros

    Worked fine in Windows XP, 32 bit, Service Pack 3, Build 2600.
    Built Partition and formated 60 Gig USB Drive with FAT 32 in a flash, when XP would only format NTSF for the drive.

    Cons

    You know, anything that formats that fast, isn't really formatting anything! All it's doing is setting up the file structure and FAT tables and zero the Directories.

    Summary

    It does the job where nothing else will. If you really want the drive fromatted after SwissKnife is done, use Windows CMD and re-do the format, it will lay down a FAT 32 format since the drive is now FAT 32. When CMD was done, it told me the drive was too big for FAT 32, but it was there and formatted.

    Updated on Jul 3, 2010

    The guiformat.exe is a very good FAT 32 format util for Windows XP. It will not create a partition, SwissKnife can do that. guiformat will only format a drive that already is partitioned. So, you can partition and format the drive (NTSF) with XP, then use guiformat.exe to re-format the drive to FAT 32. The really nice thing about guiformat, is that the non-quick format is a REAL format! So, the best way to do a FAT 32 format for your USB drive is SwissKnife to partition and do a fast format, then use guiformat.exe to do the long Real format with FAT 32. Here is the link to guiformat.exe http://www.portablefreeware.com/?id=1529&ts=1259072341
