Formatting FAT32 on USBs larger than 32GB

For those of you with too many albums, I've found a useful tool which allows you to format any drive size (Bearing in mind the maximum size of FAT32 at 16TB ) as FAT32, which is what works reliably with the Honda Connect headunit. - Windows 10 only allows you to format up to 32GB Drives as FAT32.

This opens up 64, 128GB USBs for use with the headunit.

I've taken a mirror of the file here, just in case the website disappears as it's a very useful tool, but I'd encourage you to get the file from the source (Click on the screenshot of the program) so that you're getting the most up to date version, and have the option to donate to the dev.
