No free space

I have an 8 GB flash drive, and when i put it into the computer it reads that there is only 7.8MB of free space available and there is no files actually on it.  Is there a way to reset the flash drive, or what do i do?
Thanks,

My PNY 32 GB Flash drive says 24 GB are being used, but all the files only add up to about 6 GB. How can I find those 18 GB worth of files, so I can use all the space on my drive?


Make sure nobody put hidden files on the Flash,
Copy the files off, then reformat the flash in NTFS unless you have an old computer.

FAT32 will work, the limit is 4GB for a single file and 2TB for the whole drive. If it was an SD or variation I would have kept with this for compatibility with cameras ect. NTFS for a USB has a couple features that make it slightly more reliable and faster for a situation where you have many small files.

Below is a link to a simple flash formatting tool.

Hi Virus or Trojans can run some process that keeps running in background. This not only harms the computer, but also prevents the pen drive from formatting as it shows that the drive is in use. Remove and re-insert the pen drive, don't double click on drive and cancel autorun operations if it starts automatically. Run a virus scan on pen drive, this will help fix the issue. Now format the pen drive.

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.

Two possibilities:

1. you already have more than 3GB of files on the SANDISK.
So, delete some files, or "burn" them to a CD/DVD disk,
so that you have at least 5 GB of "free" space available.

2. the "file-system" (the way that the "table-of-contents" is laid-out on the SANDISK) limits the size of a single file to 2GB.
The "file-system" on your 'C:' drive does *NOT* have that identical limitation (it does have a "maximum-file-size", but it is MUCH larger).

Open Outlook, and "compress" all the folders.
Perhaps, the PST file will shrink to less than 4.7 GB.
If it does, then you can "burn" that file onto one DVD-writable disk.

Something's wrong!

Connect the flash-drive to a USB port.
Open "My Computer".
Right-mouse-click on the icon for the SanDisk.
Choose Format.
Enable "quick-format", and click OK.

I have a 4 GB kingston USD pen drive when I try to save data It says no space


Good Day!

See first the free space of your Pen Drive, to do this, go to MY COMPUTER then right click your PEN DRIVE and click properties, you will see how much is the available space. And also try to see the file size that you are copying and compare it to the free space of your Pen Drive. You can't copy file more than the capacity or the free space of your Pen Drive, that is why you come up with that error message.

Hope I was able to help.
