My 16 GB USB shrink to 35 MB

I don't know what happened, today I realized it's only 35 MB of free space. There's 14,41 GB of unasigned space. I cannot assign it, on the disk manager all options to resize etc, it's greyed out. I have formated the operative 35 MB partition but I cannot resize the thing so it's back to full capacity. Is it broken? Fortunately I had no data in there. Now im just worried some data got left in there. I had some bitcoins and personal information on that wallet at some point. Should I smash it with a hammer and be done with it or can I save it?

PS: In case you ask, yes it's NTFS formated. And I cannot do anything, everything is greyed out, I can only click on format and change the letter of the unit.

Disk part clean?

 

Disk management screenshot?

What do you mean disk part clean?

 

No need for screenshot IMO... just imagine the 35 MB part, NTFS, healthy, primary partition, with the 14 GB part of unallocated space.

But like I said, I tried formatting, the 14 GB remain unallocated and I cannot resize it because all optioins except "properties" are greyed out in the menu.

I cannot click on "delete volume" because it's greyed out, it's unclicable.

 

The only options that are clickable on the drop down menu are:

 

open

explore

-

change drive letter and ...

format

-

-

-

-

properties

help

 

the blank spaces are the greyed out options
