Sandisk Cruzer Micro U3 memory problem

My Cruzer holds 4 gb
I had no previous problems..now once I've deleted a file from it..it hides someplace not in a file..
It currently shows 4.1 g
Free 1.1 g
Total 3.8
Used 2.7 g
Usage 68%
I am running Linux Kubuntu..no problems what at all until now..I've run a virus scan which shows nothing..because it's looking for files..
Is there a way to delete the 68%? So I can regain the memory..and stop it from using up the memory with deleted items?

Any ideas?

Did you try uninstalling the U3 software?  when the u3 launchpad comes up, there should be an options link, look in there for the uninstal button.  Once you take off U3, you can't put it back on.
if you want even more space, AFTER UNINSTALLING U3, take everything you want to keep off of the drive, and put it on your computer.  make sure you remember where it is.  then, in My Computer, right-click the drive, and click Format.  for the File System box, select FAT32, make sure Quick Format is checked, then click the format button.  Make sure before clicking that button, EVEERYTHING YOU WANT TO KEEP IS OFF OF THE DRIVE!  YOU WILL BE UNABLE TO RECOVER YOUR DATA ONCE YOU FORMAT THE DRIVE!
Hope these tips help

My sandisk cruzer 4 GB pendrive ws working fine but now whenever i try to format\copy\cut it shows location 0 with used space 0 free space 0 what should i do


Your flashdrive usually shows 2 drives when inserted to your computer, one is the U3 drive and the other one is the removable disk drives. U3 drive is your separate partition for the U3 system and in order for you to store, copy, format your flashdrive, you should be selecting the removable disk drive, not the U3 drive. U3 is a read only memory drive that is responsible for your U3 to work (just like portable applications). Hope this helps.

Corrupted files on cruzer micro 4gb


Due to the U3 technology, i.e. the files you deleted which were on the drive when you got them, you may have caused the drive to malfunction because the U3 software was not uninstalled, but rather deleted.

Please attempt to reinstall the U3 software on the Sandisk website, named "U3 Launchpad Installer"
which can be found at this link: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx

If you are still having problems, either reinstalling the software or with corrupt files, please report any errors exactly as you see them.

Your SanDisk Cruzer® Micro SDCZ6-2048 (2 GB) USB 2.0" may be giving problem due to the internal errors.
