    Exclamation I need some help.. :/ Encrypted my USB Thumb drive

    Hello, I followed this guide

    Backtrack 4 Video – USB With “Full” Disk Encryption
    Backtrack 4 – Bootable USB Thumb Drive with “Full” Disk Encryption

    but I could not get access to cryptsetup -y --cipher aes-xts-plain --key-size 512 luksFormat /dev/sda5

    OR

    cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/sda5 pvcrypt

    anyway, I unplugged my usb thumb drive and now it is encrypted.. I can't find it, and I'm looking for help on how I can format it.

    The operating system on your computer/laptop should already have formating tools available.
    If not then you should look for one to download and follow it's documentation.
    See also the if you are new to linux thread below.
    To be successful here you should read all of the following.
