Should I format my 16GB USB drive to NTFS or FAT32?
Question by Louise Booth /

I bought a 16GB usb drive and was wondering how I should I format it? NTFS or FAT32? I will be using it to store Microsoft Word, Excel and to store other documents but that’s about it!

I will be using it on a MacBook as well as Windows PCs, but as they’ll be public computers, it needs to be formated to work on most Microsoft operating systems.

Also what do I change the allocation unit size to?

Thanks
