So I bought a Dane-Elec 4GB flash drive 6 months ago.. And the first thing I did was to test wether is capacity really was 4 gigs or not.. and it was.. I transfered 4 gigs of data onto it and back.. no problem there..

But now I tried to move a file of 3 gigs onto it and XP told me that there wasn't enough space!
I was like "WTF" :confused:

So I checked it, and now it sais that it only has 1,42GB available place!

I tried to format it, and nothing.. Still same amount of space!

What could have caused this? And how do I recover my missing space?

Nevermind.. I forgot I've made some Linux partitions on it in the past.. That's why I couldn't get more space out of it in windows!
