How to restore a USB drive converted to bootable

I am about to do some OS installs (NetBSD & OpenBSD, as it happens) on 
boxen under construction. I would also like to use UBCD on a flash drive 
to memcheck those boxen prior to installation. If I prep a USB thumb 
drive as either a bootable UBCD drive or an over-the-WWW installer, I 
wipe out the drive for its original use. Is there a way to restore the 
drive back to its original functionality if I wanted to ? I will 
probably use this box, AMD64 FreeBSD 9.3R-p13, for the prepping, BTW, 
just to bring it sorta on-topic ;-) ....
