This review is from: ByteStor 8GB USB High Speed "Dataferry" Flash Drive (Electronics)
I have the 4Gb version of this product and for some reason a file directory totalling 2.14Gb in Explorer does not fit! Either some storage capacity has failed, or formatting issues are leading to the loss of lots of space... I am now looking to buy a larger drive, and it will be a different make.

If you have lots of small files, the actual used space might be more than 2GB. It depends on the blocksize of your harddrive and pendrive.

And you could have a load of deleted stuff in trash can that take up space. Irritates the hell out of me a usually Linux user.

There is a 2GB single file limit using FAT32 storage (Which all USB drives come as for compatibility) if you reformat this drive using NTFS you will be able to put that file on (Go to My Computer -> Right Click on the drive and select Format please note formatting will destroy any data already on the drive!)

If you have the 4Bg version, why are you reviewing the 8GB version? All that does is distort the ratings and make it more difficult for other customers to decide what to purchase.
