I tried Clean once before but it said there was no media to clean. I didn't try a 2nd Clean attempt, though. Let me try that.
Actually, Disk Management is kind of what got me into this situation in the first place. I was testing creating Rescue Media on a SanDisk that wasn't writing for Rescue Media before. Reflect created a 1 GB FAT32 partition and the rest as unallocated space. I created a 2nd NTFS partition from that space. I then wanted to return it to its "factory default" state, so I used Disk Management to delete first the NTFS partition and then the FAT32 one. I then tried creating a New Simple Volume but Disk Management did nothing. None of the New options did anything. Disk Management just sat there waiting for instructions. So, I tried the DiskPart steps in the Macrium KB, but got nowhere because of the No Media status of the flash drive.
Yeah, Clean just keeps returning There is no media in the service both times. The Size and Free spaces are also both 0 GB.
This is really weird. The partitions are there. Data can be written to them. I used Reflect to create Rescue Media to the FAT32 partition and wrote Reflect images to the NTFS one. I Verified the image contents on the NTFS partition. So, the flash drive does work, yet DiskPart seems to think it's dead. I can't explain this one. I repeated the previous steps and they do still work, so the flash doesn't appear to be dead, except to DiskPart.
EDIT 1: I did think of sort of a workaround. I just used Disk Management to delete the FAT32 partition. This "restored" the flash drive to 1 partition, which I formatted again as exFAT for the average user. Of course, this does remove 1 GB of available space from the flash drive, but it does work. And since I'm giving it away, someone can just deal with the cost of losing 1 GB in exchange for a free 127 GB of flash storage.
