I have had a flash drive (Kington DataTraveler G2) for quite a while now. It had 8gb of storage but when I plugged it in, it says 1.89gb in "Computer" in Windows 7. I don't know what happened to this and I was wondering if anyone could help me work out how to get it back to 8gb?

Thanks.

Please try to use better tags, "Chris" and "tags" don't have anything to do with this question.

Check if there is some random hidden partition in the Disk Management.

There is! How do I extend the partition to the extra 7gb?

Thanks.
