Help! my usb flash drive is missing space

i see only 465 mb free out of 495mb on my usb drive. but when i check the contents on the drive, it is empty, so what could be taking up the space? i remember setting up the flash disk as a boot drive but now i don't need it as one, so how can i get back my space on the drive? thanks
