Mysteriously dissapearing files

I have a buffalo USB flash drive. I had 1.93 MB of files saved on the flash drive. I went to open the disk, and it just keeps telling me "folder is empty", but when I click on properties, it says there is still 1.93 MB of used space on the disk. I know they're there, I just can't get to them. HELP!

Hi,
your folder has been secured by a virus. donot format the drive or you will lose the info. look for a data recovery software and run data recovery on that partition of the disk to recover the corrupted files
thanks

I want to save the files on my gigaware flash drive that needs to be reformated. How can I save my files? I have adobe, word, and powerpoint presentations saved to the drive.


make a folder on your C: drive, name it what ever (San4) stick the San Disk in your usb port. get up my computer, find the San Disk, right click on it, on the open menu find "copy" and click on it. then get up your C: drive, find the folder you made (San4) right click on the folder and select "Paste" from the menu and every thing on the San Disk will be copied to a file called San4 on your "C" drive

My usb external Buffalo ministation is not been recognised on my pc and the LED light is flashing green and orange


The external storage device has several major components:

* USB cable

* external power-supply

* disk-drive inside the enclosure

* USB-to-disk-drive adapter inside the enclosure.

Try a different USB cable.
Try a different USB port on your computer.
Try a USB port on a different computer.

Take a multi-meter, and measure the output voltage/amperage of the power-supply,
and compare with the specifications on the label of the power-supply.

Open the enclosure, and remove the disk-drive, and attach it as a "slave" drive in a desktop computer, to see if bypassing the USB-to-disk-drive adapter bypasses the problem.

Look at the label on the disk-drive, for manufacturer, product-number, serial-number, and manufacture date. Access the manufacturer's web-site, and use "check warranty status" to see if the warranty still is valid. If so, the drive can be replaced, at minimal cost to you.

Buy a new, compatible, disk-drive, and install it in the enclosure, to "revive" your external storage device.

Search online for a professional "data recovery service". For a significant fee, they can repair your disk-drive, just long-enough to copy your files to a new disk-drive.

I have used this flash drive for two days and saved a couple of things. Today i opened a file on the flash drive and made some changes to it. I went to save it back to the flash drive and it said the...


Were the changes you made to the drive only with text changes or did you do some attribute changes? If you haven't make attribute changes, then it should save the file without problems unless the total size of the file exceeds the drives total free space, or if the drive is write-protected or damaged. If you can't get it to run any other way, then you might consider reformattting it and starting over. If you have important files you wish to save, then you will need to run some kind of drive data recovery software like BadCopy Pro v4.10.Build.1215 (or similiar) PRIOR to formatting. This program will recover data on just about any media or drive including floppies, usb thumb drives, hard drives, etc.

Error message if trying to save files larger than about 4GB.


The Buffalo Ministation hard drive comes with a default FAT32 file system. This file system is used for compatibility with Windows, MAC OS X, LINUX, etc. The file system does not allow files to exceed 4GB. To save larger files, the disc must be reformatted. For Windows, it should be reformatted to NTFS.

I don't know how to begin to use it when I put it into the drive.what do I do next? There were no instructions on how to proceed.


Once you put it in the computer then open "My Computer" You should see C drive which is your main hard drive. You should see your CDrom drive which is typically D drive and then you should see your Flash Drive. It functions just like a hard drive. You can copy file onto and off of the flash disk. You can open files on the disk and save back to the disk. It works great for moving files from one computer to another or for backing up data off your computer and storing someplace save.

I have a brand new usb flashdrive and i have no idea how to put the story im writeing in it. can some one help me?


All you do is plug the drive in and save the file containing the story to it instead of your hard drive. Use file save as and look for your drive in (It should show up as a removable disk) the drop down menu.
