    " Thy using the DISKPART command CLEAN ".........sorry , how to do this.....?? ( cmd/bat-file....??)
    In a command prompt (Admin) follow steps 2 to 13 in Option Four from this tutorial. The end result will be a usb with a standard mbr Fat32 partition that Macrium should be happy to use for its recovery media.

    Try deleting the partition on the flash and re doing it from scratch.
    Ah! Thanks, Thomas. I didn't even know they had partitions! Learn something new . . .

    Am I the only one who has examined a flash or sd drive in partition software?

    Guess so.

    I'm going to test all the different suggestions, but first I have to let my flash drive finish the looooooooooooong format; I also clicked on "Restore device defaults".

    Since Macrium just came out with an update, it's a good time to check all this out.

    OK, I found the partition, and the thing seems to be in conflict with itself. One place tells me it's Fat 32 and another tells me it's GPT.

    I found this in Device Manager, but no way to change it back to Fat 32.

    Gpt/ Mbr is the partition

    Fat32 is the format

    Try In disk management to convert it (the flash drive or sd card) to mbr.
    You will lose anything on it.

    GPT (GUID Partition Table) and MBR (Master Boot Record) are disk types. FAT32 and NTFS are then file system architectures, completely different thing.

    Both GPT and MBR disks can have a mix of FAT32 and NTFS partitions.

    In your case, disk (USB Flash Drive) is a GPT disk, formatted as FAT32. Totally normal.

    Macrium Rescue USB should be MBR disk, FAT32 formatted.

    Think of the gpt/mbr partition as a Picture frame
    and the format fat32/ntfs/xfat as the picture that goes in the frame.

    Thanks to you both for the explanations, Thomas and Kari.

    I downloaded the free MiniTool Partition Wizard and got the job done. The flash drive is now Fat 32 and MBR.

    One down and about six to go. At least now I know how to change them back to MBR.
