I was trying to get a beta version of Chromium OS working and I put it on my flash drive so I could boot from it (didn't work
) and then I came back to Explorer to erase my flash drive, and I formatted it several different times with different formatting types and allocation sizes, but no matter what I did, I couldn't make it go back to its original size. It shrunk 3 gigabytes, from 4gb to 996 megabytes.
My OS is 32 bit - so I THINK I was formatting in 32 - bit every time. I tried small and big allocation sizes, and I tried fat, fat32, ntfs, and exfat. Nothing made it the original size. The flash drive is an OCZ 4gb Diesel.
