Cannot retrieve the missing partition of USB

Asked By 20 points N/A Posted on -

Hello!

I bought a Sony MicroVault 64GB USB Drive few months ago. I subdivided it to 2 partitions with 50/50 specifications. Now I can only access only half of the available space. The other 50% cannot be accessed. I cannot see it every time I plug it in my computer. Do I need to replace it? Is there anyway that we can still recover the missing space of the usb? Is there any new software or program that I can use to restore this? Please help me!

Hello,

Using multi partitions in a USB flash drive isn’t recommended and in Windows, such option isn’t available. In order to get back your entire pendrive space, follow the followings.

1. Start an elevated Command Prompt.

2. Run the following command:
diskpart
list disk

At this stage, note the disk number of your pendrive.

3. Run the following command:
select disk #
clean
create partition primary
format fs=fat32 quick
assign

Where ‘#’ is the disk number of your pendrive.

Now, your pendrive is available at its total size.

Windows doesn’t recognize any pendrive that has 2 partitions in it. Only one will be available, another will remain undetected. This is a problem with Windows, and Microsoft doesn’t seem to be interested fixing it.
