This tool is is really great.

This is an Administrative tool. I never give formating permissions to Users Account.

Can you Put this tool (HPUSBF.EXE, HPUSBFW.EXE) %windows%\System32 foler,

It will be more appreciating if we launch it from WinXP Control panel only.

Yes this tool works on almost all standard USB Flash Memories. I like this tool because windows does not has NTFS Formating on USB Flash Memory.
