I have a flash USB drive 128 meg. It's partitioned so I can only see 50 megs of it when I open it with windows 2000. Anyone know of any tools I could use to remove the other partitions and make it one big drive again? I don't think I can get to it from DOS, but I can't even find fdisk on windows 2000.
What did you use to partition it in the first place?
Try using that to bring the different partitions back together again.
I am not much in the know about partions on USB drives but i would think that it would work similar to a hard disk.
Did you partition it or did Windows say that the drive is only 50MB when you know that it is 128MB? I sometimes use my USB flash disk on the old Windows 2000 PCs at my college and have problems. I think Windows 2000 was one of those 'trouble' OSs when it comes to USB, no idea why though
A linux install script took over the drive, partitioned it and filled it with data. I'm not a linux person and I can't figure out the right commands to reverse it...
I finally managed to figure out that in order to use fdisk in Linux that I needed to be logged in as an administrator. Couldn't figure out how to switch users, but did figure out how to add "sudo" in front of the "fdisk /dev/sda" command to give me temporary root privilidges. I was then able to blow away the extra partitions and resize the main one back to 128 Megs.
Okay to close this thread.
Linux gets us back to the good ol days
