    Use any of these. They are just recommendations, not requirements.

    I suggest ext4 with journalling disabled.

    Note: in examples below my target partition was sda1, yours may differ.

    To format ext4 no journal:
    Code:
    mke2fs -t ext4 -O ^has_journal /dev/sda1
    To relabel the drive:
    Code:
    tune2fs -L "myusbdrive" /dev/sda1
