Default Micro SD card problems

I believe my micro sd card is trashed but I was looking for suggestions on a way to recover it if possible. It is a 64gb Sandisk Ultra Micro sd. I first noticed it as a problem while running CromiX 5.4 rom2sd, every few weeks it would lock up eventually needing to restore a nandroid or totally reflashing. I suspected the card was the problem and have reverted to running internally without any problems for months. I have deleted the partition and recreated multiple times with GParted. Gparted can see the complete card but when I look at it in a windows environment it only sees 27gb. The options to delete volume in the windows environment, disk management tool, are grayed out and formatting accomplishes nothing. Does anyone have any suggestions before I toss it out?

sounds weird, I know, but having had all sorts of weird experiences with SD cards and Micro SD cards sanDisk cards included, just wondered, how are you connecting it to your PC?

The reason I ask is that on a fairly new machine running Win7.1 I have found that if i insert the microSD into a USB adaptor it cannot read it or at best can only format to 32gig, but if the card is put into the holder that came with it my machine can see it and format it to its full size

Agreed, I also have a sandisk ultra 64gb microsd card and in order to format it correctly you have to use adapter/card reader that is sdxc compatible. It usually says on the card reader what it is compatible with. If you dont your sdxc card will show as having less storage space
