Once formatting with HP Tool is completed successfully, I would think you should have no problems for it does more than merely formatting. If HP tool cannot format a USB device (upto 2TB only), then it is dead.

Let us see how it holds in the case of this pen drive. ( It can still play hide and seek which would mean the pen drive is fast approaching its demise. Nothing lasts forever just like nothing , no medicine, no doctor, not even God can keep a human being alive forever. )

Signing off for the day.
