Make sure you're drive isn't protected or has some sort of file delete block on it.

Hi hotproperty,

Copy any files off the drive you don't want to lose. Try formatting the drive to see if that will clear it.

File can't be copy over 5gb in 8gb king stone pen drive .plz help me


First make a backup of you data in pen drive.
It could be due to virus activity, which hides files and folders on pen drive. Goto TOOLS, FOLDER OPTION and choose SHOW HIDDEN FILES.
It would show any hidden files.
After having the data backup you can format the pendrive and hopefully you would be able to utilize your drive to its max capacity.
Hope this helps!

pritz,
if the virus is of autorun category:
  • then you should use your pen drive in that system which have allready installed an anti virus. Otherwise it will effect your system.
If the virus is not of autorun category then no problem.
  1. Just insert it into USB.
  2. Just close when the auto run windows appears.Don't open folder or any thing else.
  3. Goto My Computer
  4. Right click on pendrive icon.
  5. Select format and format using FAT, because some pendrive does only support FAT.

Thanks

You have damaged the file allocation table on the drive. You may be able to recover a little of the data. There are a couple of utilities you can use to attempt to recover data from the drive:

One is ZAR Recovery. It is a trial version that only allows you to recover a few folders at a time but give it a shot:

http://www.z-a-recovery.com/

The other is called PC Inspector:

http://www.pcinspector.de/Sites/file_recovery/info.htm?language=1

They may be able to get some of your data back, chances are you may be able to get the data back, but the file names will all be unknown, so perhaps you can figure out what file was what based on its contents when these program recover the data.
