I'm not sure what's special about formatting a thumbdrive but formatting a hard drive is easily undone because no data is physically erased. There are freeware erase utilities available for SSDs and for thumbdrives that clear all of the bits. It probably isn't NSA proof (what is?) but it's good enough for most of us.
