Toshiba 2GB USB Flash Drive Capacity Problem

I have a Toshibs 2GB USB Flash Drive I use on my Vista laptop. I have formatted the drive which shows a 1.85GB capacity remaining however will not allow me to put any more than 450MB in data before telling me the drive is full and preventing me from transferring any more files. At this point the drive properties stll show the remaining 1.5GB as free space however I can not transfer any more files. How can I access the remaining 1.5GB?

Well, your flashdrive is originally formatted with FAT16(FAT) type. You can reformatted it using FAT32 from WinXP formatting tools. Just select the FAT type from the format windows/tap, and there goes, under FAT32 format, you can store any data to the maximum capacity. acerolas@gmail.com

Check under file properties and make sure view hidden is turned on for your drive. then look and see if your Trash bin is creating a recovery file.

I had this happen on one of my flash drives and it took forever to figure it out.

This typically means the drive has gone bad. Try reformatting the USB drive. Some manufacturers also provide diagnostic/formatting tools on their website that might be able to fix it. But likely it will need replaced. Lucky 2GB USB drives now only run $7.99 or less.
