  1. I hav a fren who increased the storage capasity of his pendrive from 256Mb to 0.99Tb. I didnt believe it at first but ITS TRUE and its fully functionable.
    He wont tell me how to do it though!!! So I was wondering if there is anyone else out there who is able to do such a thing... If there is PLEASE TEACH ME!

    Its just some error/glitch on the drive and windows also likes to report that size. Any data above 256 is either not going to be there, be corrupt, or destroy any previous data on the drive. I wouldn't trust a damn thing I put on the drive if its reporting that size.

    Take a look at this screenshot. There isn't .99TB free I promise you.
