The problem lies in the following way. We have a USB memory (flash drive or USB stick) With a capacity of 8 GBIn which the system no longer than Devem few MB. It happens very often that, and USB stick's format is no solution. This storage space apparently just disappear.
In our case, we have a Kingston USB memory 8GB, of which in the system (Windows 10), We do not see than 199 MB total capacity. And they busy 10 MB, even if the USB stick is not stored any file.
If I The format of this USB stickIn any format (NTFS, FAT32, FAT:), The result will be the same. Remains missing a good deal of storage space.
The only solution to recover missing storage space from a USB memory is a set of commands under Command Prompt.

Here we must be a little careful, because in the next command, we will select the flash drive we want to recover. If we accidentally select with an external hard drive or PC hard drive, we are in danger of losing all data.
In our tutorial, “Disk 1"Is the affected one, to whom we want to recover the entire storage space.
3. SELECT DISK 1
4. SELECT PARTITION 1
5. DELETE PARTITION
6. CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY
Once completed these steps, the entire storage capacity will be available again on USB Flash Drive.
