USB flash drive is widely used for the storage of data since it has large capacity. However, sometimes, users need to extend USB hard drive partition to store more data. To be specific, after running my USB drive for a long time, I find lots of free space disappeared for some unknown reasons. When running the Windows 7 operating system built-in disk management tool, I find the missing space becomes unallocated space. In this case, I want to turn to the “Extend Volume” to extend partition of USB flash drive to get lost capacity back. But, disappointingly, this “Extend Volume” feature is grayed out. Aiming at this situation, what should I do to fix this problem?
