Uninstall Ventoy from pen drive - paresh - 06-04-2020

Hi! Everybody,
                    I've recently started using Ventoy and instantly became an ardent fan of the app. Although the functionality of the app is unique & also being aware that it supports a limited number of ISO files at present, I still have a couple of queries. How to uninstall Ventoy from the pen drive once installed (Just in case if I need to) because formatting the pen drive does not erase Ventoy from it? I use Terabyte Image For Dos & Image for Windows along with Terabyte Windows Pre-Environment and Recovery Environment for my OS backup. IFD & IFW simply get circumvented as if they do not exist on the pen drive & Pre and Recovery ISOs' behavior is very erratic i.e. most of the times it hangs my PC & at times they work flawlessly, (after booting the system 4-5 times), why so? Looking forward to a positive reply from the learned people. Thanks

My PC Configuration:

Motherboard: Gigabyte Aorus Elite

Ram: G-Skill 16 GB @3200 Mega Hertz

SSD: Western Digital M.2 NVME 500 GB

SMPS: Thermaltech 650 Watts

Boot System: MBR/UEFI Both are supported

my approach would be , you don't uninstall Ventoy you just format the usb stick ; how you do that that depends I guess whether you are a Linux user or Windows user.

you can wipe clean eg dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdX bs=1M conv=notrunc,sync status=progress
you can use gparted
etc

You just need to use GPARTED to create a new partition table (mbr) in the USB stick and create a new FAT32 partition using all avaliable space on it. Then apply all changes
