How to Delete Linux Partitions on USB Drive using DISKPART on Windows 10

On your Windows 10 computer, insert the linux USB drive

Press the Windows + R button on your keyboard

In the newly launched RUN box, type:


And press Enter

From the DISKPART box, type in the following commands

list disk

Now find your USB Drive.  My USB Drive is Disk 1, so I will use that for the rest of the guide.

select disk 1

list partition

select partition 1

delete partition 1 override

select partition 2

delete partition 2 override

Do those steps until you have deleted all of the partitions.  Close the dialog box.  Remove the Drive, and you are ready to go with a new, fresh, unformatted drive.
