basstracks Posted December 5, 2007 Share Posted December 5, 2007 Don't yell at me please, I'm new. The most I know about coding is html, after viewing a lot of posts around here, mostly in the hacking sections, I am way out of my league, so you guys should be able to tell me the deal on this. I have a SanDisk U3 Cruzer Micro 1GB (the properties show it as this), I had it for a while now, when I first got it I knew nothing about the U3 stuff, and did not care for it so I somehow, do not remember, reformatted the drive and got rid of everything including the hidden partition, at least I think. (It does not show up anywhere, using many types of progs. ) What I want to know is, since it's 1 GB, why does the drive properties show me that only 977 MB are free and 4. 00 kb as used space? - Why can't I regain that extra 23 MB of space? - What is taking up that space and why can't I, or how do I get it back? It is currently partitioned at FAT32. Also I have a SanDisk Cruzer Mini 128 MB (the properties show it as this), wiped that one out as well after I bought it, and that one shows up as having 117 MB free with 0 bytes as used space. This for some reason will only partition as FAT16. So where is the extra space on both of them, why is the mini only partitioning as FAT16, even though it had the U3 software on it as well, and in the properties, why does it show up as "SanDisk U3" for the Micro 1 GB device? My guess at least this far is that I did not get rid of the hidden partition. ??? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
