SITUATION: USB recognized but not accessible.
- The files and folder are corrupted and cannot be opened
- The right click is not working
- The Windows Disk Management is not working (make a try first!)

GParted resize will rewrite the partition table and you have the chance to get a working usb stick with all the data.
This way is better and you should try it before to format the usb drive, because after format you need to recover files with other software and is another pain .i.t.a.
