16/8/4 GB USB flash drive capacity down to 938 MB

Posted by Zwe on May 25, 2016

I managed to do it with diskpart. What I was missing is the command to create a new partition. So here is a run-down of all the commands I used, step by step.

Beware that when typing select disk 1 (step 4), your disk number may be different. Selecting the incorrect disk may result in significant data loss.

  1. cmd
  2. diskpart
  3. list disk
  4. select disk 1
  5. list partition
  6. clean
  7. list partition
  8. create partition primary
  9. list partition
  10. format fs=fat32 quick
  11. list partition
  12. exit

Here it is now:


Shows up as a 14.6 GB drive.


And it looks good in diskmgmt.msc too. So it’s all good now.
