Fully Reformatting Your Cruzer USB Flash Drive

If your Sandisk Cruzer thumbdrive suddenly shows far less capacity (like 230 Mb) than you know it has (4 Gigs!) and then you go to reformat it and Windows only sees the apparent (and false) capacity leaving you stuck with limited space and no hassle free way back to your full capacity... Go and download the U3 removal tool (even if don't have U3 software installed), and run it and uninstall - this will wind up fully reformatting the flash drive and recovering the lost Gigs you knew were there.
