Large areas of FF pattern

What does it mean when there are large areas of FF in reading the data in hex? Is that something left over from a full format or is there a significance to the FF pattern?

It could be that the bits are inverted. 00 when inverted appears as FF, so that could be the blank space.

FF might means empty place. Ask your customer - how much data on his flash drive that you are going to recover :)
