2GB HP pendrive TDMG12C4M2GB083100325

My HP pen drive had key lock feature to create a secured area & a common area for user

While copiing some pics from my friend PC (already virus protected), it developed some snag and now Pen drive only shows 356MB space (common area) instead 2GB.

Even after formating this device, it's showing the 356MB space. Moreover keylock icon has also dispperaed.

Pls Advise what to do..

That does not look like virus, probably the solid state disk inside your memory stick has gone faulty.

Try formatting it again, ticking th "complete formatting" option and not the quick one.
If it does not work the memory is faulty.

If you bought this memory in recent times, go back to the retailer and tell them the memory was defective.

If it is a good brand memory stick (eg. Kingston, Sony, SD etc.) call factory, if it is less than one year old they will send you a replacement, if it is older than this, just take a chance and call them the same, if they accept it is a factory fault they will send a replacement the same.

Format your drive using a different operating system such linux or use the command prompt to format it. Just type format x and the drive letter of the drive. x represents the drive letter of your pen. Change x according to the current drive letter of pen drive.
