32GB microsd formatting issue - electric_chook - 10-29-2018

Hi guys,
Wondering if anyone can help me. 
When I use rufus to flash the image to the 32GB card, it only formats about 4GB and the rest is unallocated. I have more than 4GB of roms so you can see my dilemma. Is there something I am doing wrong?
Thanks in advance,
Brett

I think you need to use Diskpart. Here you can find information: https://www.howtogeek.com/170794/ask-htg-how-can-i-reclaim-the-full-capacity-of-an-sd-card/

Be carefull to select the right disk!!
After using Diskpart you can format in fat32 and then flash the image.
