RAW file system is typical of an unformatted hard drive and is the default state for most new retail drives because the manufacturers won't know which operating system their customers are going to put on the drive or use it in conjunction with.

Most operating system installations come with utilities to partion and and format new drives see fdisk from MSDOS (specifically versions 5 and higher) And MS Windows 3.1 through 95,98 and ME which all used the FAT32 file system as default and would partition and format during installation. Windows NT similarly would partition and format the drive during install to the NTFS system, as do all versions of Windows XP.

if you are not installing a new OS but setting the drive as a slave to a currently installed drive then you can use a program like Partition Magic or similar to detect the installed drive and partition / format it tou your requirements

My pendrive file system change to raw & I don't want to format it because have very2 important data inside.


Hi, welcome to FixYa.

This sometime can be happened if you remove your flashdisk without safely remove it first from Windows. You can still recover the files inside your flashdisk. There's a lot program can do that, but I usually use Partition Find and Mount.

Download it from here:
http://findandmount.com/fnmsetup.exe

The instruction are here:

I hope this can help you.

I have downloaded a folder to the usb drive and now i have added more files ( pictures ) to the folder. how do i now download the new files o the usb drive without adding the pictures that are already...


open a command window at the source folder
try a DOS command like this,
long line may wrap
replace the [usb*] with the spec for your system,, filespec can be anything, *.jpg *.raw that your camera requires

for %f in (*.*) do if not exist [usbdrive]:\[usbfolder]\%f copy %f [usbdrive]:\[usbfolder]

or you can make a batch file to do the same thing as this is likely to be a repeated task

@echo off
cls
echo Copying New Files
for %%f in (*.*) do if not exist [usbdrive]:\[usbfolder]\%%f copy %%f [usbdrive]:\[usbfolder]
echo New files Copied
