Changing storage capacity on a flash drive Tags: Flash Media Storage Flash Drive Usb Flash Last response: April 27, 2012 1:33 PM in Storage Share discoverit April 27, 2012 11:08:56 AM Hello, I purchased some 4gig USB flash drives from china for my charity, I've since discovered that they can only hold 1gig of data before they begin to corrupt any data on there. Is there a way i can format them to 1gb instead?

If you have a flash drive that is corrupting data I would throw it out and buy a new one though. It's not worth dealing with the hassle of possibly losing data for such an inexpensive device. | Report abuse Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Storage>Changing storage capacity on a flash drive> Related ressources: ForumWhats your absolute storage capacity .
