Why is my 16GB USB drive showing as 8GB after formatting?
Question by Happy Singg /

I have recently purchased a brand new Strontium USB 3.0 Jet USB drive. I was just trying to format the drive using some utility, but as soon as I formatted the drive it turned to an 8GB spaced drive instead of the 16GB drive I purchase. I am unable to restore the drive back to it’s actual size, even after using the Jet USB firmware as advertised on the official website.

Does anyone know how I can recover the space I have lost? Urgent help required please!
