Usage Guidelines

Usage Scenario

When the file system fault cannot be rectified or the data on the storage device is unnecessary, the storage device can be formatted. When you run the format command, all files and directories are cleared from the storage device.

Currently, only the USB flash drive and micro SD card of the device can be formatted.


After the format command is run, files and directories are cleared from the specified storage device and cannot be restored. Therefore, this command should be used with caution.

If the storage device is still unavailable after the format command is run, a physical exception may have occurred.
