TUTORIAL: Formatting A Partitioned SD Card

You may have installed LibreELEC or some other system directly onto your SD card and now want to reuse it for other purposes. 

Your SD card will have 2 partitions, one for the operating system and the other for standard storage. To remove these partitions and return your SD card to the way it was when you purchased it, there are a few methods you can use, such as Diskpart within a Command Prompt for example, but the easier method by far is  a tool called SDFormatter, this will wipe your SD card and remove the extra partitions.

The video below will show you how to use SDFormatter to do this.

Files you will need:

This tool is very easy to use so hopefully all goes well.
