I performed the USB-ZIP install on my 512mb Kingston Data Traveler. It worked fine at first, but after removing the drive, then plugging it back in the drive is stuck at 49.1mb in size. How do I remove all of the DSL info and return the drive to full capacity.

BTW, I did search before I posted I just couldnt locate anything. If this has been addressed already could someone just link me?

Much appreciated.

yes this has been answered before...  I suppose you didn't search for the 50mb part (yours is 49.1 heh) which was mostly used by other threads i think.

answer is: your pen drive is just partitioned into 2 parts - 50mb to hold the dsl data, and the rest for anything else.
So you didn't lose "full capacity" or whatever you want to call it :)

to reformat to just  1 partition, use the USB-HDD utility instead.
