    I'e tried a couple of times to change the file system of my 1Tb flash disk, but no changes made, I've used Diskpart , EaseUS Partition but I've been unsuccessful.
    The flash drive is from HP.
    Any ideas on how to?

    Insert the USB flash drive, then make sure it's recognized in the window that shows the list of drives in your computer.
    Right-click the USB flash drive icon, then click "Format".
    Select "NTFS" in the File System box, then click "Start".
    A warning will appear that all data on the USB flash drive will be erased.
    If there's no data in it that you're worried about losing, click "OK".
    When the formatting process is finished, click "OK - Close".

    Can you provide us with the model/product number of your HP-branded 1 TB flash drive, or a webpage link for it?
    According to the HP site, it only makes 8 GB and 16 GB and 32 GB capacity flash drives.
    I'm wondering if you bought a knock-off or counterfeit flash drive.
