Flash Drive Showing Allocated Space
I have a pen drive of 8 GB which I use to boot my damn small Linux. after installing this distribution to my pen drive its saying that 5 GB space is allocated whereas the distribution size is approximately 50-70 Mb. When I try to copy -paste file on my flash drive it says no space left & I am not able to copy anything in it. I have some more portable applications on my flash drive like Firefox and thunderbird which I use to synchronize my mails and for other stuff.
I want to use full 8 GB space and don't want to remove distribution also. Its ok if I have to re-install it as I don't have anything important on my flash drive. I already tried formatting my flash drive but its of no use. Still 5 GB space allocated by something, I don't know what. Also I want to know is it possible to make partitions of a flash drive or not? Tell me any solution for this problem. Thanks.
