hi Punkster
you seem to be closest to my understanding,,,you say""""I think what the OP means is why there isn't the NTFS option if he can see it on his USB, it's tied to the fact that you have to enable "Better Performance" in the USB under Device Manager to enable the NTFS formatting option

I do have the option for NTFS and donít need to enable "Better Performance"

so still confused..
why should I plum for "better performance" to get safe drive extraction Ö?
WHS Wrote---For a stick it does not really matter. It has no write buffer and whether you check Quick Removal or not comes out to the same.

So formatting drive to NTFS can be done safely with either "Better Performance" OR Quick removal (default) chosen....yes

You asked: "can I choose Quick removal (default) and format my corsair 16gb using NTFS?"
And you gave the answer: "So formatting drive to NTFS can be done safely with either "Better Performance" OR Quick removal (default) chosen....yes"
Lastly you said: "please anybody got any comments"

If you are looking for confirmation, it worked fine on a Kingston 32GB pen drive just now formatting to NTFS with Quick removal selected. No problems with reading, writing or removal without rigamarole. So yes, it's fine.
