I recently purchased a 64 GB USB on eBay; I wasn't too suspicious as it was only a few pounds cheaper than the major retailers and the drive was supposedly made by a very well known company. The drive worked well for the first few days but then I noticed that some of the files I had saved on the drive were disappearing.
I started to think the drive might be oversized, so I used H2testw to check how much data was actually being stored on the drive. I found that the drive is really 8 GB. I opened a PayPal dispute and managed to get a refund for the device and for the postage.
But now I'm left with an oversized USB drive that I can't really use as any data over 8 GB won't be stored.
I was wondering how a USB drive is oversized and how to get it back to its original size so it can be used?

as par paypals policy on other things, typically you must destroy or dispose of the device you are refunded.
but if i am mistaken on that point here are some things to try: Search google...
there are other links you can look at as well.
