You can get a user manual here:

Some of these drives come with logon software and some do not.
You need to determine what is on your drive before formating it.

Normally, it'll take software from the maker of the thumb drive to do this. I've read that there are ways to do this from within Windows - but have no knowledge of exactly how to proceed.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
