unsigned char f_format( unsigned char ucFATType );
Format the drive. Formatting a drive will close any files that were open
and destroy any data that already exists on the drive, including the master boot record.
The formatted drive will start with boot sector information created from
the information retrieved from the f_getphy()
routine, and use the entire physical space for the volume.
The format operation will fail if the format type is incompatible with
the size of the physical media.
The following values are valid:
F_FAT12_MEDIA to format as FAT12.
F_FAT16_MEDIA to format as FAT16.
F_FAT32_MEDIA to format as FAT32.
The format operation was successful.
Any other value
The drive was not formatted successfully - the return
value holds the error code.
void vFormatDrive( void )
unsigned char ucReturned;
ucReturned = f_format( F_FAT16_MEDIA );
if( ucReturned != F_NO_ERROR )
