while formatting the pendrive (32 GB), I pulled it out, unintentionally. Now the pendrive is recognized but only with 760 MB. How it get back the pendrive to full capacity?


I got the solution..
as it is said in howtogeek, we can install gparted and select the device that needed to be recoverd and format it again as ntfs or ext3/ext4. The link provided above gives explanation regarding how to format a usb drive in ubuntu using gparted.
Hope this answer would be helpful to the community.
I appreciate the correction@guiverc

    No your link is fine, but your answer is really just follow & read the link. If you read the how-to-answer it tells you "Links to external resources are encouraged, but please add context around the link so your fellow users will have some idea what it is and why it’s there. Always quote the most relevant part of an important link, in case the target site is unreachable or goes permanently offline." – guiverc Aug 7 '18 at 9:09

Just adding additional solution. Try to format with mkusb.

Click here for mkusb description


sudo add-apt-repository universe  # only for standard Ubuntu

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mkusb/ppa  # and press Enter
sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install mkusb

It comes with good GUI support. Just format as mentioned in this link
