    500 GB USB reduced to 30 GB USB SSD - how do I revert back to 500 GB?


    I purchased a 500 GB USB drive. Based on another problem I downloaded Windows 10 supposedly bootable USB files. The procedure erased my 500GB SSD and installed the supposedly bootable USB files.I ultimately used a bootable DVD drive instead.

    Now the 500GB SSD shows as a 30 GB drive. I reformatted and still the capacity is only 30 GB. How do I get full capacity back?

    :)

    500 GB USB reduced to 30 GB USB SSD - how do I revert back to 500 GB?

    Am I limited to 500 GB drive when replacing a drive?

    My HP PC from 2009 originally came with Windows Vista and I upgraded to Windows 8.

    About 2 years ago I ordered a new hard drive and used my HP recovery disks to install the factory image. My PC came with a 500 GB hard drive and HP told that I have to purchase a hard drive that was 500 GB or larger.

    Last year I upgraded to Windows 10.

    I want to order a SSD for my PC. If I can create a Windows 10 disk and not have to use the HP recovery disks, am I still limited to purchasing a 500 GB or larger SSD or can I get a 250 GB SSD?
