1.) If you have any important data on your USB flash drive, make sure you temporarily copy the files to your Mac’s desktop.

2.) Open up Disk Utility (Applications > Utilities) and select your flash drive on the list to the left.

3.) Choose the Erase tab near the top of the window and select MS-DOS (FAT) from the Volume Format drop-down menu. This is required if you want your drive to be Windows-compatible.

4.) Give your drive a name (keep it short with no special characters).

5.) Finally, press the Erase… button and your drive will be wiped clean.

This process will give you access to your USB flash drive’s full formatted storage capacity. If you backed up the drive’s data to your desktop, you can copy it back and use it just like before — with more free space!
