    the USB drive is 16gig, It was reading a foldxer on my drive as 116gig

    its a USB Stick

    ive managed to format the stick.

    just would like to know if 8,120 bytes on the drive after being formatted is right

    For such a Large Disk, It's Somehow Right.
    Personally I would format it with 4,096 bytes
