Is there any utility available to format the usb drive when Windows 10 consistently responds that it cannot proceed with the format request?

I have read the various posts where users have been able to recover from this situation by reloading a new dfu. I have tried all the different varieties of t8sg dfu's with no success. I saw a 2018 post by Vlad_vy that seemed to say that a build is available that may be able to format a usb drive even when widows fails. However that file in that thread has been removed. Vlad or anyone else - I would appreciate knowing if there are any options.

I was able to backup the original files just before the corruption or problem occurred. So finding a way to reformat the usb drive seems to be the only hurdle left. It used the t8sg v2 dfu as one would expect with an lcd screen.

The unit is a new JumperTX T8SG that BG just started selling. It apparently is manufactured by someone other than Jumper.xyz, and uses a mainboard that looks the same as a v2-plus board with an lcd screen. -thanks

You can try Quick Format option, it's the only working way for nightly build. Also, link to custom build with flash memory bulk erase, but I think it will do nothing if you have damaged filesystem, it can help with inaccessible USB drive:

Also, you can try to flash build based on v5.0.0, it allow to perform full and quick format:

My JumperTX T8SG is on the way.

Added sound indication to buttons press and to be sure you don't "Power OFF" transmitter before erase will complete. The build and description updated.
