Chapeau on USB stick needs password for encryption and then to be deleted, how to?


Good day, at the moment I am using Windows 10 and have Chapeau on a USB stick with encryption by a password I have. I want to delete Chapeau and use the stick for files. How is it done?

Chapeau is a modified Fedora, like Mint is a modified Ubuntu Distro. Main thing is it is encrypted.

Format it. Since you're using windows 10 you might have better luck at a windows forum or the microsoft site, Just an online search should bring up numerous sites with explanations such as the one at the link below.

Microsoft site, just change the filesystem from FAT32 to something else, the process should be the same.

Agree just format it, or try to use 3rd Party Format like EaseUS.

Or try mounting to Linux use DD or Gparted

Are you able to mount it?

How about dd? dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdc bs=1M

You need to remove the whole partition, are you able to do it via disk management in Windows?

Or if you prepare command line, what happen if you open diskpart and just remove the partition are you able to get back the whole space.

Gparted worked, so cross compatible with Linux I need use NFTS and which allocation size, for my 64 GB stick? Should I do it in Windows 10 or with Gparted? I read Linux doesn't use exfat?

I may put videos and documents on my stick....

"As for allocation size, it all depends on what you want to do with your drive. If you have a large drive (such as a 500GB hard drive), a large allocation size such as 32 kilobytes will make your device faster, but storage space may fill up quicker. For small drives, such as 4GB or 8GB flash drives, a smaller allocation size will help conserve space."

I chose 16 KB, but this formnatting is new to me, in regards to speed and fill up time. Is there a sticky or explanation?
