Tablet [Q] Acer A500 Internal Storage after Un-bricking

Hello, a few weeks ago I accidentally bricked my A500 in the process of installing custom roms. Today I finally decided to try and revive the thing. After successfully bringing it back to stock Honeycomb, I noticed it was only recognizing 25MB of internal storage, although I have the 32GB model.

My only guess is the somewhere along the line, new partitions were made and upon installing the stock rom, it was installed to a smaller sized partition. So my question is how can I re-partition the whole system and bring it back to how it was fresh out of the box? Also, if anyone thinks that isn't the issue and have another idea what could be wrong, please come forward.

I am looking for a solution which can be used with Windows or Mac (don't currently have a machine running Linux).

Thanks in advance!
