Kingston DataTraveler Kyson usb stick

Hi, I bought 128GB kingston datatraveler kyson usb stick and its bit strange one.
https://www.kingston.com/unitedstates/e … lash-drive
Compatible with     Windows® 10, 8.1, 8, Mac OS (v.10.10.x +), Linux (v. 2.6.x +), Chrome OS™

lsblk
sde             8:64   1 115.6G  0 disk  
└─sde1          8:65   1 115.5G  0 part
fdisk -l /dev/sde
Disk /dev/sde: 115.59 GiB, 124117843968 bytes, 242417664 sectors
Disk model: DataTraveler 3.0
Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disklabel type: dos
Disk identifier: 0x4361cb99

Device     Boot  Start       End   Sectors   Size Id Type
/dev/sde1  *    227712 242417663 242189952 115.5G  c W95 FAT32 (LBA)

That looks normal, but

fdisk -l /dev/sde1
Disk /dev/sde1: 115.49 GiB, 124001255424 bytes, 242189952 sectors

Why are partition sizes like that?
How do I format it?
Is it going to break if I make new partitions?

Re: Kingston DataTraveler Kyson usb stick

You are looking at the partitions of the partition. Your partition is sde1. The ones you see when you look at the partitions of that partition are some old compat FAT specifics so that windows considers the FAT filesystem valid (see e.g. https://www.linuxquestions.org/question … ve-239577/ ) but these shouldn't be further worrisome for you. You should in general not try to manipulate at multiple partition levels of depth.
