Format a drive using Disk Utility on a Mac

1. Launch Disk Utility (Applications > Utilities).

2. Select your external hard drive or USB flash drive from the list on the left.

3. Click on the Erase tab. Select the format – Mac OS Extended (HFS+), MS-DOS (FAT32), or exFAT – then name the drive.

4. Click the Erase button and the drive will start formatting. Be aware that formatting a drive deletes all of the files on it, so back up anything important before completing this step.
