DISKPART Fix Error: Can not delete a protected partition Without the force protected parameter set.

After some time we show a tutorial how can recover all an USB drives (flash drive). There are situations where, for example, we have one Stick 32GB, but we see a total volume of just a few MB. This scenario I experienced on Windows 10 with a flash drive Kingston DataTraveler by 32 GB, of which I saw only 120MB available.
I open Command Prompt (with priviliegii administrator), I took command set "DISKPART"To erase completely the active partition, but after the last command line: DELETE PARTITION, I have encountered the error: Can not delete a protected partition Without the force protected parameter set.

Apparently, this is a measure of additional protectionTo be sure that we remove it entirely from the flash drive space.
Once this error occurs, the command line is executed: DELETE PARTITION OVERRIDE. This command will completely erase the data on the flash drive, and the volume will return to normal.

I do not know if this problem is typical of the Windows 10 operating system or is also true for older versions of Windows, but I know for sure that it solves the problem of "missing" space on a flash drive.
