    ur pendrive file system may have been changed to RAW which is a very serious problem. Same was happened with my transcend 32gb sd card. I had tried everything even the least possible method but no solution I got even if you get the best software there is hardly any chance of getting the space back..
    for ur satisfaction u may try swiss knife premium…if also using this nothing happens then if ur pendrive is in warranty period then get it replaced
