Why does my 32gb flash drive only show up as 2.78gb? I have reformatted multiple times using FAT32 and NTFS and have also played with the allocation.

You might have a hidden or non formatted partition on it taking up all the room. Look in Disk Management. What does it show in there?

To get to Disk Management, right click on the My Computer icon on your desktop and click on Manage. You'll see the Disk Management option over on the left.

Try the flash drive on another computer. It could be faulty.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
