DO NOT DO THIS, you will damage your flash drive..

If it is 8gb then keep it as is, do not change it or you will/could destroy it all together.
Just use it as normal.

Please post back if you have any more problems or questions.

I suspect the "Unallocated" space is the stick's filing system...

The bit of the stick that tells it that it is a stick of USB flash RAM.

In this present day, one Terabyte of flash RAM is only for the military and certainly would occupy far more space than the inside of a flash RAM stick.

As Peconet has already said, if you mess around with this Unallocated area you will end up with something only useful if you wish to jam a door open, or scratch that hard-to-reach part of your back.
