Hello Everyone,

I got myself into a little pickle. I was trying to schink a partition on my desktop hard drive and accidently pointed to my thumb drive. Now my thumb drive is showing a 10 mb partition instead of 2gigs. I tried to repartition it, i tried to delete it, i even ran a recovery with partition magic. Is there any way to restore it back to normal or am i pretty much out of luck on this on?

Time to re-write the partition table :)
has a bunch of good utils

And for a resource has a whole bunch of format tools. The HP format utility might work if those are too scary.

Just be careful when using these tools (well, you already showed us you were not in the first attempt).

You should ALWAYS have a backup of your data.

Now when using the recovery tools just make sure you don't point to your internal drive instead, otherwise you will be in a much worse situation.
