Extension for DOS formatting
« on: December 13, 2023, 11:41:44 AM »
Recently I have played around with disabling as much unused extensions as possible when I noticed I cannot format my USB stick to DOS anymore, only apple disk format.

Does anybody have knowledge which particular extension is responsible for the function?

when i remember right, in OS 8 and earlier it is the PC Exchange control panel which steals that option from you when you disable it.

in OS9 i dont know offhand where the functionality could be hidden.

In OS9 it's File Exchange Control Panel
If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the problem.
