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.

I don't formats my kingston 64gb pen drive


Hi kingkumarae,
Due to viruses , the drive cannot be formatted in many cases, however if you want to format it ,

I would recommend that you restart your computer and plug in the pen drive and then do not autorun it.

When you do that , you can right click on the drive that you find in my computer and then rightly click on select format option, and then you can format your drive.

If this does not work in your computer you can possibly try it in your laptop using the same procedure.

Hope this helps ...:)

Hi,

Ithink it could be due to virus activity. Some virus make the contents of thedrive hidden, that's why user can't see the files and the space available for use is less than thecapacity and also can not open the drive. It issuggested that go to FOLDER OPTIONS - and select SHOW HIDDEN FILES. It may showthe hidden files. If can not show ,hidden file (tools >folder option>view> check on show hidden file>check off hide protected and checkoff hide extension) now can see all hidden file in c drive. If not think...... For ensure again run>type> msconfig > hit can not open ms config if virus effected run >type> regedit>hit>can not open registry if virus effected run >type >gpedit.msc>hit can not open group edit policy if virus effected Otherwise, ifyou don't have any vital data on the drive, just format it in another pc.Pleasenote, before insert the Pen drive .Go to run command from start menu OR Press Win key+R and type gpedit.msc and hit>Usser configuration >system>turn off auto play >enable>use down arrow key select all drive >apply >ok.

And now can insert pen drive and format. Hope this wouldfix the issue and . Youshould fully scan by f-secure bootable cd or any another antivirus bootable cd.Just insert the disk and restart.

When i connect my pen drive to my pc then it gets connected but after that if i try to copy or delete or format the drive i cant because i get error as remove write protection mode and try again


HI there its a reason for virus infested system with pen drive. Your PC & pen drive both are infested by virus. That's why you are not able to deleted or copy or format that Drive. Its a trozonhouse or warm32 virus. I suggest you format the OS and install it again. After that connect the pen drive but remember do not open the pen drive. Straight way format the Pen drive first then open ok. Other wise your PC again virus infected by pen drive virus. Thanks.

Do not showing full space


Hi,

I think the problem is due to a virus. Your system or hard drive (PAN drive) might have a virus. It is the virus causing your hard drive not showing full space. i suggest you install a good antivirus to your computer like kaspersky and NOD32 and scan the PAN drive and formate it. 
go to kioskea downloads - system - formatting, and download the USB DISK STORAGE FORMAT TOOL, 
intall it on your pc and use it to format your drive. its simple ans easy. another way is-
You can format the pen drive from hp usb disk format util.. u can download form following link
