Windows 7: Kingston Datatraveler USB Stick

Kingston Datatraveler USB Stick

Hi guys,

I bought a 16gb Kingston Datatraveler USB drive.

I want to format it and I'm unsure as to what Allocation Unit Size I should choose.
My options are:

Default
4096 bytes
8192 bytes
16 kilobytes
32 kilobytes
64 kilobytes

8192 bytes is selected when I choose format.

Any ideas?

Do not bother about Allocation Unit Size.

For optimal performance and longevity use the SD Formatter.

Yes, it is for SD cards but you can format flash drives too.

It sets the correct allocation size automatically.

Download the User Manual and read through the various options.
