View Full Version : [all variants] U3 flash drive

Does anyone know how to get rid of the U3 self-boot partition on a USB flash drive?
gparted does not even recognise it. It sees the rest of the drive, but not the portion used for self booting. The self boot part shows up as media on the desktop and the balance shows up as a flash drive.

I had to go on a windows computer. Wait till it loads then open the options from by the clock and find the uninstall option. Not sure how to do in Linux though.

I put mine in Windows and it gave me the option to remove it, after re-formatting, it told me it was now for storage only.

BTW: it was a SanDisk
