I recently installed Fedora 30 on a system, and I would like to reclaim the USB drive I used to install it. I have been running Fedora Media Writer and clicking the Restore button for the USB drive. However, the USB drive is not being recognized by Windows 10 once I finish.
I have tried several options to recover the drive. If I run the Computer Management tool and select the drive from Storage > Disk Management, I see the disk and its space. But if I try to Change Drive Letter and Paths, Windows 10 tells me “The system cannot find the file specified.” Attempting to format it gives me the same error.
Running diskpart as admin and attempting to “clean” the drive tells me that “Access is denied.”
If I run Fedora Media Writer again, it repeatedly gives me the option to Restore the USB drive.
Am I missing something?
