mkfs.vfat is used to format a file system using the FAT32 file system.

Usually needed to format thumb usb disks.

In Arch Linux you need to install, dosfstools

sudo pacman -S dosfstools

This will get you mkfs.vfat and mkfs.msdos

If you need to format using ntfs install

sudo pacman -S ntfsprogs
