Download SM32Xtest Tool – A nice utility has been created to format USB Restore Key of Snow Leopard Mac Book Air into a normal standard UFD (Universal Flash Disc). Yup, remembering that Apple has seeded Mac OS X 10.7 Lion which has been leaked and I believe it will soon be officially released, a restore key running Snow Leopard isn’t so useful. So instead of throwing it unused, you’d better to format it and use it as a normal USB Flashdisc drive to store any data, pics, videos and documents.
By default, Apple locked that restore key stored in a USB Drive obviously for strong reason and they don’t want you to hack with that stuff as this is your only method to restore your MacBook Air. But however, the decision is up to users isn’t it?
Luckily there is a nice tool named SM32Xtest (it is a Windows utility) allows you to format that thumb drive and unlock the Restore Key inside so you can use it to store / save other data there.
