I have a NAS that is capable of expanded storage by attaching a USB drive to it : the only catch is that USB drive has to be FAT32. In order to do that, I have to convert (format) my existing NTFS format USB drive to FAT32 format.

2. In Computer Management, do I have to turn the disk "Offline" prior to running the formatting proceed?
I plan on running the CLEAN ALL command from within DISKPART to wipe the USB drive prior to formatting it using Brink's tutorial (Disk - Clean and Clean All with Diskpart Command
