Windows 7: 4gb Memory stick

4gb Memory stick

Hi

I have a 4gb memory stick that I have used many times to install Linux etc on old laptops etc. Now that I want to use that stick to copy off some files from Win 7, I notice that Win 7 suggests its capacity is only 1gb.

I think I have seen this kind of thing happen before but cant remember how I resolved it.

Anyone got ideas on how to kick-start Windows 7 into recognising its full capacity ?

Cheers

Is it formatted for NTFS?

I had the same problem a while back and changing to NTFS solved it. Your mileage may vary.

Convert FAT or FAT32 Volume to NTFS
