    Hello! I have a flash drive that shows 0.98 Gb free of 0.99 Gb, but when I go to computer management it's says that the flash drive actually has 3.73 GB of space. What? It also shows on computer management that the flash drive has 7 Health (Primary Partitions), 2 Unallocated (which I can't extended the other partitions to) and 1 blank space. I've never seen this before. I've tried formating the flash drive but nothing happens. The flash drive is a white "Lexar". Can anyone tell me how to fix this.

    Try formatting it in a different machine/OS.
    ​If that doesn't work, bin it.

    Try with GParted, it is an awesome software that comes preload with most Linux distributions but it can be downloaded and used on Windows
    Is very user friendly and there is a lot of help in the web about it, but try to repartition your USB with it

    Is GParted suppose to be an iso file?

    Yes, you burn it to disc and it boots before hard drives to be able to work (see all drives for partitioning/formatting), may work in virtualbox or something?

    Yes it is a ISO but you can found it also as a standalone .exe for Windows

    .exe? I haven't seen one on the website. I've only seen it in .iso which I burned it to a cd and it gave me errors when booted from that cd.

    It's a 4GB USB stick. Which is probably borked. Personally, I'd just bin it and not spend anymore time on it.

    Try using diskpart commands and see if it works

    hotphil, true but I need this flash drive. My 2nd flash drive holds a backup OS and my 3rd flash drive holds all my personal files and documents.
