I have a Alcor Micro Corp. Flash Drive 2GB pendrive which I would like to format using f2fs partition. I tried using gparted 0.18 to format it however, f2fs seems to be disabled.

Is it possible to format my pendrive using f2fs? If yes, how do I do it using gparted

P.S.: If it is not possible using gparted 0.18, alternatives are most welcome.


You need to install f2fs-tools:

sudo apt-get install f2fs-tools

This will install /sbin/mkfs.f2fs and that should activate the f2fs option for gparted:
