My 16 GB kingston pen drive is now showing available memory as 2mb of 2mb.
It started after my friend installed linux os into it.

This is due to windows unable to manage partitioned flash drives.
To solve this issue
1) Open a CMD as administrator ( click on start, type CMD, right click on cmd, run as administrator)
2) Type list disks (Find the disk with 16 gb capacity eg disk 1)
3) Type select disk 1 (In this example disk 1 is the target)
4) Type clean (Warning: this will erase all data in disk)
5) Type create partition primary (A new partition will be created)
6) Reconnect usb drive, u will be prompted to format it.
7) Format and enjoy 16gb goodness....

Typed using smartphone, please ignore if there are any spelling mistake...
I hope that fixed it
