Have you checked if this is the only computer affected?
Is your 16gb brand new or has it been used / you created the partition?

This should help you recreate the whole partition as reformatting the partition will only modify the 4mb data.

I guess the 4mb your seeing is the partition where the encryption software is sitting!

From one of the other blogs, I decided to use the HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool. It worked and reformatted the entire free space, in seconds. What I do not understand is why the SANDisk and Windows would not allow me to do that.
