USB THUMB DRIVE IS FORMATTED BUT MUCH SMALLER THAN ACTUAL SIZE

Exciting Offer: Pronto Single Sided Card Printer

I had this problem. I had a 4 gb usb (flash) thumb drive that was showing up as 584mb. I was lost as to what was happening. I tried formatting it from the stock windows screen. Nothing worked. Until I had an idea… I went to start, computer, manager and then to disk manager. That showed my problem. The thumb drive had one partition and this partition was 584 mb so every time I formatted I was formatting that partition. The rest of the thumb drive was not part of that partition. I simply deleted the partition then formatted the drive again and voila the whole 4 gb showed up…
