Question Flashing image to USB drive decreased its available storage space

Hello,

I was working on a computer and flashed a recovery utility to a USB drive that normally has 320GB of space.
Flashing this software somehow (maybe it messed up the MBR?) reduced the available storage space on the drive to 31 MB. I've tried formatting in Windows and also from the command prompt before the OS loads.

Does anyone know of any software that would be able to wipe this back to default so all the storage space can be utilized?

Thanks in advance : )

Yes.
It is now formatted FAT32. 32GB volume size.

Do you still need the recovery thing?
If not....Disk Management.
DELETE all existing partitions, and reformat it.

If that fails, then the commandline diskpart, and the clean comand.
