I used wintoflash to create a bootable device from my USB flash drive.

It had 8GB, and now I can see only 2GB.

I tried using win 7 default disk management utility but it can't merge the partitions.

Any advice how to do it ?

Was the drive partitioned or do you only see a 2 GB flash drive? – TheLQ Jul 18 '10 at 19:24
It was partitioned by the software. I now can't un partition it :( – Tal Galili Jul 18 '10 at 20:11

Copy off important data, then delete both partitions, then format it.

Thanks you. How do you delete a partition on a USB? (the software on win 7 doesn't offer it - it does only for normal HD) – Tal Galili Jul 19 '10 at 3:38
The partitions should show up in Disk Management (it does for my usb drives), delete them there. – Moab Jul 19 '10 at 15:03
