    I was right.... it's in firmware. It even can be fake.
    How to Make Fake Pen/USB/Flash Drive Genuine/reset to Original Capacity?
    I hope the "clean" command works... otherwise he has to hack the firmware (although most fake disksizes display more GB's insetad of less).

    If clean doesn't work... buy a new stick

    Clean did not work but it did format it to FAT32

    Unfortunately the option to delete the volume is greyed out.

    Where did you buy the USB stick from?
    Just like sd cards, there has been a huge fake market for this kind of thing now.
    You buy a incredibly priced flash drive or sd, and you find out you were taken for a ride.

    No errors but it did not return the drive to it's 32GB size.
    I got the drive free from a friend so it's not a huge deal I was hoping it really was 32GB like it says on the casing.
