Format formats your floppies with different capacities of 1440 kBytes or above. Even floppies with a original size of only 1440 kBytes can be reformatted. Now it is possible to save and to transport a file whose size would normally be too large. Additionally format creates a file system of your choice on the floppy. You can choose between FAT-12, FAT-16, FAT-32, ext2 and minix. If you want to use the disk with DOS or Windows, FAT-32 is the right option.
