    Problem with a 64gb USB Verbatim flash stick


    This evening I wanted to transfer a 11gb video from an external hard drive to a 64gb USB flash stick (sometimes called a thumb drive or pen drive), but I noticed there seemed to be an 'extra drive' showing on 'This PC'....drive (H).
    I think (but am not sure) this is a result of my previous failed attempt(s) to create a bootable Windows USB drive.
    I'm guessing at that because of the name drive (G) seems to have acquired. (WinToUSB)....a program I have on my PC.

    The solution is probably very similar to a problem I had a couple of weeks ago with a Toshiba external drive....a problem I was able to resolve with the help of some quite clever guys here on Ten Forums.
    (you know who you are). *Wink

    I'm over 70 so I don't always absorb (or remember) information I've been given in the past, so I'm asking for help once again. I've attached a screenshot to show the problem.

    Just goes to show certain programs in the wrong hands (like mine) can cause havoc.

    Is it OK to install and run Windows 10 in a 64GB USB stick?

    Hello,

    I have planned to buy a SSD but the USB sticks and SSDs are both made of flash memory. Why can't I install Windows 10 in a Sandisk 64GB USB stick and start using it for daily tasks? including playing games.!

    Please suggest.

    • 16GB, 32GB or 64GB storage capacity
    • Transfer rates up to 120MB/sec on USB 3.0 host systems
    • Push and pull design protects connector
    • Compatible with USB 2.0 and USB 1.1 ports
    • Works with PC, Mac and Linux operating systems
    Easy to use high-end performance
    The Verbatim Store ‘n’ Go USB 3.0 Flash Drive comes with a push and pull design that does not only protect the connector but also makes an extra protective cap unnecessary. Compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems, the drive also works with USB 2.0/1.1 ports.

    “USB 3.0 drives make a lot of sense because they are 100 percent compatible with USB 2.0 and offer far superior speeds to devices that have USB 3.0 ports,” said Hans Christoph Kaiser, Business Development Manager Flash Verbatim EUMEA. “We are expecting the bulk of the premium USB flash storage market to migrate to USB3.0 within the next 18 months.”

    Problem with a 64gb USB Verbatim flash stick

    How do I reformat the 64GB USB stick used by media creation tool ?


    My usb sticks were either 8GB of less, and 64GB, so when using the media creation tool to upgrade Windows 10.240 to the November update which failed, I had used my 64GB disk.

    However, I cannot use it for anything else. Worse, it is now 32GB.

    If I 'open as Portable Device' it shows only 32GB, but with 21.1 GB free of 31.9GB.

    No where have I read of any issues or suggestions that Media creation tool does this, or of people encountering problems.

    In case someone asks whether I am sure it is 64GB

    Please can anyone explain how to get my 64GB back?
