    Ok, here is the issue. A guy I work with has a 2 gig usb stick, he decided to reformat it (why I dont know) but the problem now is it is only showing 1 gig. In diskmanager it still only shows 1 gig. Any ideas on how to get it to recognize the rest??

    Since it's only 2 gigs, use FAT instead of FAT32 or NTFS. It will be a bit faster.
