If you make partition, only FAT portion is recognized by windows. So it only shows what size the FAT partition has, no matter u use it or not. Hope you got it

Hi

Format using right clic on windows or you can delete the partitions using the same program that built them.

Windows only recognize FAT16, FAT32, NTFS and exFAT. Linux distributions let see them.

Hope it helps. sorry for my bad english.
