Diskpart is a windows application to restore pen drive to factory settings.Diskpart can recover original pen drive size. Many time i lose my pendrive actual capacity. I had created hackintosh , OpenSUSE bootable using image writer. Everything gone fine , but when i plug it on openSUSE and Windows 8 , I saw only 4 MB or 200 MB on my pendrive. Pen Drive capacity became 200 MB. I had format it many time but still 200MB. I tried Disk utilities on Ubuntu , openSUSE but nothing happened.  Then i heard about Diskpart tool on Windows , diskpart is look like command prompt. Terminal and Command prompt are the powerful applications on Ubuntu and Windows respectively. We can do anything using Terminal and Command prompt.
