Ok I have helped some people here so I am hoping to get my favor returned with this real tough one :grin: Okay so I use a Attache 1 Gb Flash Drive and I thought to myself one day (why dont I install a mini pclinuxos on here). So I go ahead to, it formats, and partitions it and then messes up. Im not worried with the installation its just that now my 1 Gb falsh drive is only 465 Mb in Windows eyes!! :frown: When I went to the logical disk manager on my Windows Vista Business, it had said that there was a 392 Mb, 465 Mb, and 9 Mb partitions. Is there any way to put all of the partitions back together again. People usually skip over these hard one but please, anyone can you help me, I really need all that space back :frown:

Hi Techpro, I found this article from a google search. You may have to use an XP machine if you're going to follow this word for word.

If you have stuff on there that you want to keep, you'll want to dump it on to the hard drive before you try it though.

Yes, I have tried that but it had gave me an error message saying "The Attempted operation is invalid." I would give you the picture my I can't upload anything due to a DNS problem. I am going to post up that problem in a later thread after I get this all solved out. Anyways back to the point, I really have no idea because it will not allow to make any changes to the partitioning and it seems I am locked out as you can see I got that error message from trying to delete a partition on it. I am really perplexed by this one. :frown:

This would be a stretch, but I would try the gparted livecd. It's basically Linux on a cd for the sole purpose of partitioning. You can download it at http://gparted.sourceforge.net/livecd.php

Just be careful you don't select your computer's hard drive for repartitioning ;)

Only thing I can think of would be to try the same thing in a different machine and see if it locks up there too.

Perfect, for some reason the security on Vista was locking me from deleting the partition, but the good news is that I tried it on another one of My XP Computers and the partitions deleted!! :grin: My flash drive is back to normal so Moderators, you can put this case as [SOLVED] :smile:
