Editors' review

MiniAide Fat32 Formatter lets you format or create fully customizable partitions in any hard drive. It merits using just for the detailed information it gives you about your computer's hard drive or drives alone. It's also worth recommending, even if it is a mouthful to say.

This program gives you a graphic organizer of your hard disk/s and partitions. It shares status information like the available space, style of formatting, and what they're being used for. You can create new partitions of any size, as well as delete and relabel existing partitions. If a drive's really giving you trouble, you can wipe it and reformat it, with ease. You can even defragment a drive from inside the program to gain some extra space. MiniAide Fat32 Formatter presents all of these nifty features in a sleek package that is really light on RAM usage. It took us less than a minute to download and install this useful utility using its built-in setup wizard. We found the demo video that comes with this program quite useful, too. Once set up and running, the program instantly allocated all our partitions and we were able to perform operations on any of our partitions with just a few clicks and each action took from a few seconds to less than a minute to complete.

If you think you're the type of power user that needs a program like this, this download is a no-brainer. MiniAide Fat32 Formatter gives you all of the control over your hard drive that you crave in a smooth package. Before doing anything, creating a backup is recommended, of course.

    Tried to format a 500gb HDD to FAT32 using DOS in Windows 7, after 4 hours it reached 100% then said it could not format the drive as it was too big. This program took less than a minute and the drive works perfectly.

    Thank you, thank you! Someone had formatted my External to only work with Mac. It's been useless to me for the past 3 months until I found this software!

    Thanks again

    "Exceeded my expectations!"

    July 12, 2013   |   By solflowr

    Version: MiniAide Fat32 Formatter 1.05

    Pros

    Worked perfectly! Now my Smart TV can see my hard drive.

    Cons

    None at all.

    Summary

    I bought a Seagate 3TB hard drive to have easy access to my media on my Smart TV. Well, I was quite disappointed when I plugged it in and it didn't show up on the tv at all. I did some reading and realized that most devices will not recognize NTFS, and that FAT32 is the way to go. I tried Acronis Disk Director as many others had suggested, but it wouldn't recognize Seagate for some reason. So I came across this software and thought I would give it a try. Although, I had read that FAT32 usually will only work with hard drives 2TB or less, I wanted to try it anyway (didn't want to waste return shipping money to Amazon, so I was trying anything!). Quick install, no trouble recognizing my device, instructional video was very helpful. I followed the instructions and had NO PROBLEMS at all. In about 5 minutes start to finish, my tv was recognizing my hard drive and playing my media. THANK YOU!

    "Great for reformatting a hard drive to FAT32"

    November 25, 2012   |   By ssuna

    Version: MiniAide Fat32 Formatter 1.05

    Pros

    Free
    Simple to use
    Fast

    Cons

    None so far

    Summary

    I needed to re-format a Toshiba Canvio 500gb USB hard drive to FAT32 for use as a backup drive for a PS3. I clicked on download, ran the software, skimmed through a 30 second video tutorial & then had the drive reformatted to FAT32, all in less than 5 minutes. I'm sure its good for other things, but that was all I needed done.
