Getting back bytes on a USB drive

Hey there, I've been using a Cruzer Micro 1gig USB for my data transferring needs, but a while ago it screwed up, and I lost a lot of files. Thankfully, I was able to get most of them back, but now I have another big problem. Ever since that last incident, I've found that I can't use a good chunk of my Drive. When I look it up, it says that over 880 MB are being used, despite nothing actually appearing on the drive window. SO. I would like to know if anyone could help me either reveal these files that are clogging up my drive, or just clear them all out. Thanks in advance.

You can just reformat the drive. Evidently there are a lot of hidden, system or otherwise invisible files still on there (probably the ones you recovered).
Ahhh... easier than I thought it would be. Thanks for the response!
