Hi Jan,

Ubuntu Live DVD has an app called Disks, It is a GUI app for formatting Disks etc

Click on DASH icon, type Disks, click on the Icon

You should be able to delete the partitions, and create new ones

Good day all, my new portable Samsung T3 SSD (250 GB) needs installation
of extfat-utils to open in Ubuntu. I cannot install this software when
running on live cd. Is there a better way out, e.g. by reformatting to
get away from its current exFAT HTFS/NTFS?

Many thanks,
