The icon you click on to get access to your private area should be located in the public area. If it's located in your private area it will effectively become invisible along with all the other files in your private area. And, yes, whenever your private area is invisible (ie not logged in), Windows will only report the space in the public area since it doesn't know the private area exists -- that's normal behaviour.
The manufacturer of your trek thumb drive should have a website from where you can download the log-in/log-out utility that is currently not available. Download it and put it in the public zone of your pen drive, then try logging-in to the private zone with it.
Dowloads for the Trek thumb drives are here: http://www.thumbdrive.com/s-downloads.php?...dthstyle=w-wide
Scroll down to "Login Software" and click on the appropriate security login utility for your model.
