How to format to
FAT32 under Windows 8? Formatter applet shows only
exFAT the same as
FAT32 with some paramters?
If the target partition/drive is larger than 32GB Windows will not offer to let you format it as FAT32, because their formatting tool doesn't support FAT32 volumes that large (hasn't since windows 2000).
There are 3rd party utilities for formatting larger drives as FAT32 on Windows though, like the fat32format utility. It has a GUI version as well. (note: I've never actually used this, it's an example ;) ).
