My USB device (8Gb), I used to install a Linux distro on, (as a platform to start installation on a server). Was kinda messed up… Instead of giving 8Gb, it was showing ~300mb and refusing to format in Windows. Even in linux parted and fdisk did not show the right size, combined with allot of errors.

I was able to solve this re-sizing using BOOTICE, I found how on this page.  Notice the Linux method there was not working in my case.

Hope this helps some people desperately searching for a solution.
