    • 1). Connect your USB drive to your machine. Simply plug it into an available USB port.

    • 2). Install GParted. You can use the terminal to install GParted by typing sudo apt-get install Gparted or you can use Add/Remove program.

    • 3). Run GParted. In the terminal, type sudo GParted. Or choose GParted from the Applications | System Tools menu.

    • 4). Click the GParted menu at the top of the screen. Select "Devices" and choose your USB Drive.

    • 5). Click "Device." Click "Create Partition Table" and choose the type of table. GPT works best with Linux.

    • 6). Select an unused portion of the drive. Click "New." This will open the partition setup interface.

    • 7). Choose partition size, file system and label. Use the capacity of the disk for partition size if you want a single partition. Choose a different size if you'd like to make several partitions. Choose FAT32 for your file system if you'll also be using this drive on a Windows machine as well. Choose HFS or HFS+ to make the drive readable by a Macintosh. Choose ext2 or ext3 for best compatibility with Fedora.

    • 8). Click "Apply." Wait for the process to complete. Your drive is ready to use.
