    Hi,

    I recently purchased a 32GB Silicon Power T02 32GB USB Flash drive to use as a recovery drive and to put a backup of key files on. In disk utility, I attempt to create two partitions on the drive. However, when doing so, The minimum size for either partition is 5.4 GB. It appears as a light blue "used" space on disk utility, and I cannot decrease the partition size below 5.4 GB. Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Steve

    To make the partition smaller than that, you need to manually enter a size in the box to the right of the partition graph.

    I tried that, but it wouldn't manually allow me to do that. I tried making it 4gb, but it jacked it back up to 5.4.
