  2. Windows 10 Install Files Turned 128 GB Flash Drive into Only 32 GB!

    I used the Windows 10 upgrade to place the installation files onto my 128 GB Sandisk Cruzer Flash Drive.

    I later just used the regular upgrade via downloading over the internet and my upgrade went fine.

    I went back to my flash drive to delete the Windows 10 off of the flash drive only to discover that my 128 GB flash drive was now hosed down to only 32 GB of storage, even after formatting the drive!

    Does anyone have any suggestions how I might restore the full storage of my flash drive back to 128 GB?

    Thx, in advance,

    Don

    Installing Win 10 x64 using a flash memory

    As long as the flash drive is MBR, with a FAT32 partition marked as active. Then you can copy and paste all the files and folders from a mounted Windows 10 installation ISO file to it and it will be universally bootable.

    32 GB flash drive to install windows 10

    Installing Win 10 x64 using a flash memory

    The media creation tool would reformat the 64 GB flash drive after the above steps back to a 32 GB flash drive.

    Microsoft tech support had suggested a copy and paste of a desktop iso to the flash drive (I've not yet tried it).

    Would tomyfr then have a universally bootable Windows 10 iso flash drive adding this to the above steps (64 GB flash rive) or does something else need to be done?
