    As you can see in the image below, I have 6.61GB of Unallocated space. When I right click either I cannot expand or shrink the storage.

    I believe this happened when I used PowerISO make a bootable flash drive of an Ubuntu ISO.

    Is this fixable?

    If you have that copy of Ubuntu on a disk, you can use GParted you delete and reformat the USB as a single partition, if you wish.

    I unfortunately don't have Ubuntu anymore. Is it possible to do this in Windows?

    Not sure.

    What happens when you delete the existing, formatted partition? Does the drive show up as a single, unformatted space?

    HP Flash Utility did the trick! Thank you Triple6!
