I remember using Disk Utility to format disks and USBs in 12.04.

Now, after upgrading to Ubuntu 14.04, I can't seem to find the Disk Utility application.

How do I format disks in 14.04?

Looking for applications that are installed by default to carry out this task

    This is one more application the Gnome folks shredded. It is still there, but with reduced functionality and usability. I suggest you use GParted instead, this one they haven't touched yet. – Luís de Sousa Jun 4 '14 at 7:21

Now it is named "Disks". Search for it in the Lens. (command gnome-disks)

enter image description here
And more options are as follows:


  • Where can I partition the drive? – callmekatootie Jun 4 '14 at 7:15
  • "Edit partition" or click the minus sign to remove the selected partition. – LiveWireBT Jun 4 '14 at 10:32
