Just tried to flash kubuntu onto a 16GB drive using win7/64 and latest etcher (portable).
Went afk at maybe 50% and came back to flash failed. Retried and after a few seconds, it says again: flash failed.
Curiously the drive now shows to be only a few mb big with some kb used (efi>boot>3 .efi files), in explorer. The drivemanager shows the iso size unassigned (roughly translated), 4MB EFI systempartition and the rest is again 12GB unassigned.
Unfortunately i closed the program, as it didnt show a concrete message to my noob eyes, so i dont have logs.
Does this make sense? Is the drive failing or can windows just not read it?
