I know this has been asked before but I didn't find the answer helpful.
Can Users format UBS keys without being Administrators?
We don't want to change permissions for our users just for this.

Yes, we are in a domain and one of our users wants to perform this task.  I was able to do it as an Administrator but user would like to perform task herself - seeing if there is an easy way as we won't make her admin to do this

We don't generally use the power user - might be able to if there is no other choice but was hoping for another solution
