usb stick size

  fatherted57 12:29 06 Oct 2010

Hi there, I am using windows 7 ultimate, but I thought I would try the usb version of google android o/s. I put the o/s onto my 4gb memory stick but I did not like the google o/s. I formated my stick but when I looked at the size it was only 980mb. I have tried a few programs that make the disk bigger but it went to 4gb until I put data on it then back it went to 980mbs. I even tried it on an other pc with xp and formatted it , but nay its still the same. Am I flogging a dead horse or can the stick be restored to its 4gb origonal size?

What system are you formatting, FAT 32, FAT, etc.?

Also click the button in Format "Restore Device Defaults"
