USB flash drive capacity used up?

Specs: Macintosh
Hi, I have a 4GB Kingston DataTraveler USB flash
drive and I can't put any files on it even though I have
deleted all that are visible to me. It says that there are
25KB available, and that 4GB have been used
already. Is there any way to clear all that information
that is still stored on it? Because I can't find a way to
do that. It's format is MS-DOS (FAT32) if that helps.

If you know how to use command line you could try the command attrib *.* /s to see if anything is hidden.

Might be that you do have that many files. Use shift key in explorer to select all the folders and files and then right click to select properties. It would show pretty much how much is on it.

Guess if you have used linux it could be different recycle folders.

Assuming there's nothing on it you want, can you format it?
