Hello yargd mate I don't really know what you mean by detecting it because in the attached pic it is there labelled E:.
Now have you tried giving the other larger partition a letter?? if not do that and then right click on both and use the Explore in the PW program it will pull down what is in that partition.

If this is not what you mean let us know.

Hmmmm...... No details at all. Nothing to say how you partitioned a flash drive?

When and wherefrom did you buy that 128GB Kingston flash drive? And for what price? Can you tell us the exact model name/number? It will be fine if you can show it in the Kingston website.

To me it looks like a fake drive. I may be wrong too. Please verify the product here How To Identify Kingston Product | Kingston

Alternatively, backup all data in the E: drive, delete both partitions and try to format it with Partition Wizard. . Report the results.

BTW, I see you are using Partition Wizard Professional 9.1. Did you buy a valid license? Just curious.

And again, please upload full screenshots always to SevenForum Servers and not to any third party servers. Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Seven Forums

yes I bought the license.

I split my 128gb USB into 2 partitions: 10gb and 118gb. The problem is the 10gb showed up, but the 118gb partition didn't show up. How am I going to use the 118gb partition to store data?

My usb is a normal working usb not fake. I can use it as 1 128gb partition but not 2 partitions as I mentioned above.

I did but one of the partition keep losing its letter, even in Partition Wizzard.

This is the error message in Disk Management.

You most probably created that partition using Partition Wizard. Right?

When you did it you would have definitely got a message that Windows will see only one partition that is first. Did you or did you not?

It is not possible to see both the partitions in Windows,

If you want to access the other partition, use Partition Wizard, right click on the 10GB partition and hide it. Then give a drive letter to the 118GB partition.. Apply.

Now Windows will see your 118GB partition.

As far as I know , there is no way you can see both the partitions in Windows. You have to hide one to see the other.

If you find a way to view both partitions in Windows. , let me know. I am willing to learn .

You have to do a firmware hack to make the flash drive appear as a HDD. But such firmware hacks may not work with all brands of flash drives and you may even ruin your flash drive attempting such hacks.. So I would not recommend any such hacks. Use your flash drive as it is intended to be used - no partitions or if you insist on having many partitions use the safe method of hiding all other partitions each time.
