I have an AData 32GB MicroSD almost fully loaded with GoPpro video files. I want to transfer all of the files onto an AData 32GB USB Stick, however, I am running into a problem.
The supposedly 32 GB USB stick isn't 32 GB at all, is only 28.9 GB, and the supposedely 32GB MicroSD card also isn't 32GB, its only 29.4 GB. Even though the MicroSD card is not full, the files add uip to more than the capacity of the USB stick.
Here are a few things I have checked...
► The USB stick is brand new, so bad sectors should not be a problem. I have checked another brand new 32GB stick with the same results.
► I have reformatted the USB stick to remove any chance of hidden or system files being present
On the format dialogs for the two drives, where does the figure in the "Capacity" drop down box come from? Is it simply repeating what the drive is already formatted to, or is there some "secret" information on the drive that Windows is accessing.
Is it possible to change the actual size of the drive, i.e. format it to the exact same specifications as the MicroSD card.
