When i copy any data to my 32 Gb Kingston pen drive whether any audio
or video file or any software, the data get corrupted or may be
deleted. some trimes it happen that some of the AV files are working.
Why this happened that the data are deleted. I have lost many of my
files due to this.It cannot be fomatted also. Please sort my this
First, you should know your pen drive is infected with a virus. You
can't usually repair it, you'lll just have to format it, and I'm
getting to that.
Now, Before you format the pen drive, you might want to preserve some files in the drive?
Instead of trying to view the pen drive by double clicking or right
click=>open TYPE the ASSOCIATED DRIVE LETTER at the RUN DIALOG BOX
If your pen drive is assigned to drive E:
Type "E:" (without quotes) and hit enter.
It should open.
Now you will probably see some weired .exe file, probably named
fun.exe. That's the virus. You just cant delete it. BUT you can copy
the rest of the imprtant files to your hard drive.
type "cmd" (without qoutes) and hit enter
type "format/x E:" (without qoutes and mind your spellings and spacing.
REPLACE "E:" with the associated drive letter of the pen drive)
Hope my info fixes your problem, Thanx for using fixya.
