    4 USB drive only shows 3 GB capacity after the installation of windows 7 on it

    I have a problem with my Kingston 4GB Pen drive.Last year in january 2012,I learned about “Secret partition on a pen drive”.I divided my pen drive into 3GB and 1GB partitions and installed windows 7 Ultimate SP1 on it.Now my pen drive shows only 3GB of space.The secret partition of 1GB seems to be lost.It doesn’t allow me to change the size of the partition.Can you tell me how i can recover this partition please?

    You seem to have followed the workshop perfectly but have forgotten one simple step where you are supposed to copy the driver for your pen drive on your new operating system and install it. Only then will the new operating system recognize the changes you made within the pen drive. If you have the driver,you should install it on the PC. If not,you can still make your own drive all over again. Nevertheless,if you want to format the entire drive back to normal,there are two ways to go about it. First,back-up your data from the pen drive and download a free partition management tool called MiniTool Partition wizard Home Edition. Start the utility,choose the pen drive and delete all partitions and recreate a single once again.The second option is to delete all partitions and recreate the new partitions using step 9 of the same workshop you followed.
