    I have a weird „problem“.

    One of my USB sticks, a 32GB one, behaves strange. Whatever I do, it will always only show a size of 100MB.
    It has named ítself "QA F" (F=Drive Name) and properties shows 100MB, no matter how I often I re-format it.
    I assume there is hidden folder on the rest of the stick. And of course the folder settings are on SHOW hidden folders
    I do not want to save whatever is there, I simply want to access it to get rid off it, so I can use the stick again.

    It could be, I made the stick bootable… no matter, I simply want it cleared.

    Any suggestions? Thank You

    But please tell us whether it worked right for you or not. If yes, then it was as expected but if not then tell us to learn or someone will come up with another idea or solution.
    Look, the spirit here in MDL forums is to obtain knowledge.
