Angry My 16gb flashdrive went down to 750mb

My 16GB Sandisk Cruzer flash drive only shows 750mb. How can I fix it?
I've had it for about a year and it has shown 14.9GB until today, it's only 750mb for some reason. Please help...

Go to Control Panel>Administrative Tools>Computer Management and click Disk Management in the left list. Select your flash drive, (be careful!) and right click on it and delete the partition. Then, right click and create a new partition. If that doesn't work, I don't know what will. You could have a damaged drive.

What could have caused it? I have old (256mb) flash drives that still work...
It was perfectly fine yesterday.

EDIT: I'll try that.

EDIT: Delete Volume is grayed out, but it shows 14.95GB in there. When I go to My Computer, it's back to 750MB

EDIT: Other than that, its fine. I can still put files on it. Does that mean it's not corrupted? I would like to have it back to full capacity, though.

Chances are, if he formatted that won't work...


What have you had stored on it?

Just documents and game maker projects...
I have everything on my hard drive too, so I didn't lose any files.
