#21 closed enhancement (invalid)

Implement formatting in an expected manner (format x: /fs:FAT32)

Reported by: Lewis Rosenthal Owned by:

Component: utilities Version:
Severity: high Keywords:


Currently, formatting a FAT32 volume involves running a standalone executable (fat32fmt.exe) with its own syntax.

Formatting FAT32 should be accomplished as with any other filesystem under OS/2, via the format command:


It should also be possible, then, to enhance PMFORMAT.EXE to support formatting FAT32 (not that such an enhancement belongs to this ticket or this project).

2Lewis: You're not right. The formatter is present in both fat32fmt.exe (standalone) and ufat32.dll (intergated). So, format e: /fs:fat32 must work if you install ufat32,dll to a LIBPATH. Pmformat.exe, as well as format.exe are frontends to ufat32.dll and should work out of the box.

It's that blasted \ecs\dll in LIBPATH. I had an old UFAT32.DLL in there.

Sorry for the noise.
