After I tried making a bootable USB it makes the flashdrive 721MB instead of the 1GB it originally was. How do I make it go back to 1GB?

I would think that a swap partition (extra memory on disk or whatever) is taking up the rest of the space on your usb.

you could try (in console):

sudo fdisk -l
to see if it all adds up.

It's probably still 1GB, but in several partitions.
Start up gparted and take a look at it.
