Ultra Fit 3.0 flash drive 128GB

I have just purchased this flash drive to store a large number of photos, videos, etc along with OneDrive. 

I am using Windows 10 Home and have been told that I should format the FAT32 flash drive to NTFS to store larger files.

Is this correct, please?

If you have files over 4 GB you will not be able to store them on FAT32 and reformating is an option.  But I would use exFAT not NTFS.  NTFS was designed for hard drives, exFAT was designed for flash drives with files over 4 GB.

. . . and the 128GB drive you just bought should already be exFAT format from the factory.
