good. Now still in DiskManagement:
right-click in the big area of the usb stick and choose format.
here's a snip showing this:

Now you get a screen for specifying a label, choosing ntfs, default size and quick format:

Kmjnhh,
Let's try this before we throw the stick away:


PREPARE A UFD/SSD/HDD FOR USE


UFD = USB Flash Device, such as, pen drive, thumb drive, usb stick.

Run CMD.EXE as administrator
Ctrl + Esc | type Cmd in the “Search Box’ | do not hit Enter |
right-click on CMD.EXE in the list of Programs
| YES button (if asked)

Use DiskPart ----{type commands, follow each by hitting ENTER}
Type DISKPART ------{starts DiskPart; command prompt changes to DISKPART> }
Enter following DISKPART commands:
List disk ----------{list number assigned by DiskPart to the drives;
-------------------- note the numeral assigned to your UFD/SSD/HDD}
select disk 1 ------{the numeral 1 will be used in this example}
detail disk --------{info will help verify that you’ve selected the desired disk}
clean --------------{zeroes only first and last sectors to zero out boot info;
-------------------- This is much quicker and suffices for most cases. }
create partition primary -{create a primary partition in the selected disk}
select partition 1 -------{select the partition you just created}
active -------------------{mark the partition as Active, ie, a system bootable partition}
format fs=ntfs quick -----{format the partition as ntfs}
assign -------------------{assign next available drive letter to the volume}
exit ---------------------{exit DISKPART and return to the command-shell prompt}

exit ---------------------{exit the command shell }
