Let’s fix USB incorrect size
By trying many tools and trying many methods, I figured out that two methods were able to fix this problem. I am going to share both methods.
If you want to see the video tutorial, Here is it.
SOLUTION 1: HP USB DISK:
1. The First thing you have to do is to download the HP USB DISK STORAGE FORMAT TOOL, You can download it from this link:
2. After it is downloaded, you have to open it as an administrator,
3. You will see your USB listed in the HP USB TOOL software, Select it, Select desired file system and name and check quick format if you want to format it quickly and then press format.
And you will recover the original size of your USB, if for some reasons it didn’t work check solution 2 and if it works go down and follow us on social media.
SOLUTION 2: RUFUS:
If for some reason the first method didn’t work, don’t lose hope I have another method for you. Here are the steps for it.
1. Download Rufus, Rufus is basically a software to make bootable USB like win32 disk imager but it provides format tool too so we are going to use that. Download Rufus from this site:
2. Once it is done installing, open it and you will see your USB listing there. Select it.
After selecting the USB, you will have to select the boot selection and here select non-bootable, Partition scheme should be MBR, Target system should be boot or UEFI, Select USB label if you want to, Select File System and You are good to go.
If both of the above methods are not working you can try the DISKPART method using cmd prompt. This video might help you,
Hopefully, by following the tutorial, you have recovered the size of your USB or SD card.
