Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I have a 4GB flash drive. It has been working fine. Then all of a sudden I can't save to it, and I can't delete from it. A message says that it is write-protected. It tells me to un-do it, but I can't figure out how.

My delete button stopped deleting emails in Outlook Express


You may have maxed out your storage. Try moving the deleted messages to a new folder if working with Outlook Express you can save the messages. Moving messages to Trash still counts toward your storage. If using Web mail, download and save the messages to a folder. Once done, you can safely delete these messages, freeing up your server for more traffic.

This is a common problem with some thumb drives as they can confuse the bios.It is good practice to remove flash drives before you shut your box down unless they are for Ready Boost and reinsert them after your O.S finishes loading when you restart.There have been issues with data loss on some of these drives when left in during boot up.
