Right now it takes 6 clicks to format a partition. This is an overkill, it would be nice to reduce it to 3 clicks.

"3 clicks" sounds like you have an idea how it should work. What should we remove?

  • Right click the partition (1)
  • > Initialize (2)
  • > BFS (3)
  • Ok (4)
  • Annoying confirmation dialog to prevent data loss (5)

I guess you went with "select partition and then use Partition menu" for the first step, making it 6. We could remove the confirmation dialog and make the settings dialog also include a warning.

How do we save one further click? The dialog with settings is specific to each filesystem (not all of them allow setting the block size, and they may have other settings), so it is hard to have a single dialog for all filesystems.

Agree. It looks like we can't really reduce the amount of clicks. The most annoying part however, is several different alerts popping up one after another. If we can merge some of them somehow, that would be great.
