How to re-partition a USB Drive in Windows

I recently played with the Moblin Linux Distribution by installing it on a USB stick.

The only problem was, the USB stick was 8GB and the image was only 700MB – stupidly, I was expecting the remaining ~7.2GB to be available. It wasn’t (because it was a .img file)

So… this morning I went on a hunt to find a way to restore my USB stick back to normal.

I found it here: Re: How to partition usb thumb stick??

under XP, just go Start > Run and type diskmgmt.msc

Works a treat!
