I wanted to dual boot the system so I downloaded Debian and installed it
on a 2GB flash drive. Later I decided to replace it with Ubuntu because I am
more familair with it. But then I found that the 2GB pendrive had shrunk to 689MB.
I searched the web and found a lot of suggestions to reinstate the orignal capacity
but they were all rather complicated. On a Mac however  it could be done
simply and easily.

Plug the pendrive in the usb port. Open the Disk Utility. The pendrive will be listed
in two or more partitions. Re-partition it as one and it is done.

I suppose the method will also work with Linux and Windows partitioning utilities.

Cheers
