RE: Files messed up on flash drive

I have a 1gb verbatim flash drive and it was working all day yesterday as well as previously until i went to lunch. When I came back from lunch and tried to retrieve a document on my flash drive it would not come up. The message kept saying that I needed to repair the document so I went into "type of files" and chose recover from any text. the files have a squiggly line next to it and some of the letters are changed. For example, instead of library it says hibrary~1.

Re: RE: Files messed up on flash drive

That means the file has been messed up during transport of some time when it was not being used if you smart enough to have a back up file or two copies of that file just copy and paste or save twice again.

I have a verbatim 4gb micro with a write protect error. I cannot delete the files, add more files or format the stick. Regards Mano

It has password protection. Open My Computer on your PC, insert the USB drive, open the password file, enter your password, then select the option to remove password protection from the USB drive. If this does not work, contact Verbatim for a solution, these USB flash drives have lifetime warranties.

It seems that the disk-drive is "dying".
If it works, at least a bit, copy all the files from it onto your C: drive, or burn the files to DVD-writable disk(s).

I'm Windows XP... I can copy many files to the Verbatim. But when I try to copy a 1GB+ file, the copy craps out. I Googled and found some Microsoft problem when copying 1GB+ files to external drives, but...

The usual limit is exactly 2GB, not 1GB.
It's a limitation of the file-system used for the directory of the disk-drive, when formatted according to the 'FAT32' specifications.

So, copy all the files currently on the Verbatim to your disk-drive.
Then, "reformat" the external (not the "internal") disk-drive, using the 'NTFS' file-system. This file-system has a maximum-file-size limitation for one file that is _much_ larger than the capacity of your Verbatim.

Then, copy all the "saved" files back onto the Verbatim.

Finally, copy your "large" files onto the Verbatim.

Dropped my verbatim smartdisk portable hard drive. I'm able to open the disk but when I open the file, it's all gone. what do i do?

What you have listed isn't a hard drive, It's a flash drive and it is practically indestructible by a common drop, If you can plug the drive in and access it then the drive is working correctly. If it does not say something like " Insert disk in drive E: " when you try and open it once again chances are the drive is working fine. The last time you connected it previously to dropping it you might of removed the drive before it was done. Some times Windows does not write the files right away if the computer is also busy, this can cause a delayed write failure to occur when you remove the disk before it has written the file down. If you plug it in and the computer does not see it or you get the stated message I wrote above then it's broken physically. If you can still write new files and read those then chances are you missed a write window.

You go to my computer, then double click the d: drive. then minimize that screen. Go back to my computer, double click the verbatim (assuming it is already plugged in) then on the start menu bar, right click on it (an empty area) and go to tile windows vertically. Then move files from your D to you Verbatim drive. Since it is not your C drive, there should not be anything in there that you can move that will mess up your computer. But still be cautious.

Verbatim 1gb flash drive privacy zone lost space

In order to delete your privacy zone, you have to get the application once more. To get the software click here ...ok so you will have to format your flash drive with the application, removing the privacy zone if you want, this will obiously DELETE ALL DATA ON THE DRIVE after the format has completed, you can then remove the application from you flash drive, if you still remember the privacy zone password, then all you have to do is just type it and you have acess to the privacy zone... anyone who needs assistance can contact me to if you are confused, email me and i can also try to clear it up for you. MAKE SURE THAT YOU CHOOSE THE CORRECT PRIVACY ZONE APPLICATION FOR YOUR FLASHDRIVE
