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.

Perhaps it has not been prepped, eg: not formated to use. Format it with fat32 file system using formatting software from the manufacturer. Also, make sure the movie file does not exceed 16 GB.

Windows says not enough space on pny 8 gig flash drive


Try formatting the drive as NTFS instead of FAT32 (assuming you are using it only on Windows computers). FAT32 doesn't support files over 4GB.

For more info, see http://www.google.com/search?q=fat32+file+size+limit
