SANDISK ULTRA® DUAL USB DRIVE 3.0 32 GB drive now showing only 128 MB

Hi 

 

I have a SANDISK ULTRA® DUAL USB DRIVE 3.0 32 GB pen driv and have a Windows 10 Laptop.

Few days back I connected the same to a Macbook and copied some files in it.

After that while trying to connect the same in my Windows Laptop, it is showing capacity of 128MB only.

Even after formatting the same it is showing the same.

 

Please help me out to solve the same.

 

Thanks and Regards

It appears something/someone changed the partition table on the drive.  And Windows only sees the 1st partition on a removable drive.  Someone use the drive with a Linux system?

 

BTW Do not recommend NTFS on flash drives.  FAT32 or exFAT is preferred.
