Maybe the root of the USB drive is protected. If you got any switch for write protection in the USB drive, unlock it and try saving.

Thank you!

How to move/copy user files to external hard disc (wall or usb powered) so that productivity applications default-save to the external hard disc (virtual drive) folder via...


quite a bit of "what if's there" lol

First of all, yes you CAN re-direct the 'my documents' folder to another location....be it on an internal or external drive volume. This requires careful adjustments to the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folder

when you do this, you can assign any path to the "my documents" folder, (and also the others listed,) this will be a permanent change and will cause that path to be the new destination for files saved to 'my documents' by the OS. the actual path does not HAVE to even have the word 'documents' in it...you could call it E:\bubbles if you want.

You would continue to 'save' your new docs to 'my documents', the OS would just be interpreting a new and different destination for the Save.

Should that resource become unavailable, you would have to perform a 'save-as' and then specify a valid save location.

If you are doing this because of limited space on your C-drive, well and good, but if not, then consider Drive synchronization software instead.
These software programs allow you to specify single, or multiple folders, to copy files. you would set it up to copy from your pc to the same-named folder(s) on the external drive, and to propagate changes....so it will save files that are new or changed and delete files that were deleted, (this can be suppressed.)

One of the pitfalls of using USB devices is that drive letters are typically assigned automatically. If you do not manually assign a drive letter that is not typically accessed by the fist say....4 USB drives, it is possible for the PC to become confused and start putting files to the wrong USB device. So assign your external a high drive letter like P for portable, and don't forget to include that in the new 'path' you put in the registry.

I hope that answered your questions.

How do I get my document back from Lexar 8GB JumpDrive TwistTurn - USB Flash Drive


Hi Sarah... We will need to know a few more specifics before any information can be given to you. What program where you in, and what type of document were you trying to save. If you were in Microsoft Word, you can go up to the "file" menu, and look for "recent items". At that point, you would be able to open the document that you were working on, and then save it to your location of choice. What you might find simpler in the future, is to simply save documents to your desktop, and then drag them to the flash drive directly from there. At that point, you will have the document both on your desktop and the flash drive, and you can then take the documents it is still on your desktop, and move it into your documents folder...

Flashdrive keeps deleting


With all the hours and effort put into progressing in a video game, protecting your saved files becomes an important matter.

Creating a backup on a flash drive ensures that your game will be preserved. Having a copy is also handy if you get a new computer or if you merely want to keep your character safe for a sequel that allows you to import your progress from a previous game.

While you cannot save a game to a flash drive while playing, transferring or copying a saved game file to a flash drive is a simple process.

Locate the saved game files on your hard drive.
The location will depend on the game that you are playing (see Below)

Tips & Warnings

BioWare games save within the "BioWare" folder created in the My Documents folder.
Most games purchased through Steam will be saved under Program Files>Steam>Steam Apps>[Username.]

A Game independently installed will likely create its own folder within Program Files.
You may need to visit the game developer support site to help track down that game's specific location.
Open your flash drive.
Click and drag the entire saved game folder to the flash drive to make a copy.

Depending on the amount of file data, this may take a few minutes to complete.
Do not delete this folder on your hard drive or uninstall the game until you have verified that the saved game files work on other computers.


To transfer the saved game, plug the flash drive into a computer with the same game installed. Open your flash drive. In a separate window, open the same directory location where you found the saved game on the other computer.


Click and drag the saved game folder on your flash drive to the game folder on the new computer.
If a window pops up asking if you would like to overwrite similarly named files, click "Yes."

How do I load information onto the flash drive from my desk top computer?


Plug the flash drive into a USB port. Usually it will take a minute or two to load drivers, and will show up in "My Computer" as an additional hard drive (Maybe E: or F:, or some other letter depending on what drives you may already have). Doubleclick on the drive letter to open the folder and drag documents from folders on your PC to this folder. Or you can save documents directly to the flash drive once it's mounted, by navigating to that sam edrive letter in the "Save As.." dialog box.

How many directory deep is the file going that you are trying to save? I believe the maximum NTFS file (location + name) of file length can not exceed 256 characters total.

Example: C:\user\documents\file.exe is OK

But: C:\user\documents\folder\folder\folder\folder\folder\this folder name 230 charicters long\file.exe BAD

Every time I take things from my flash drive. The pictures will transfur ok. The doc. in work looks like an empty folder. I was able to open it once. But I would loose it.


Which document proggy do you have and what type of file are you saving to your flash? doc? rtf? If you are able to save a document to your hard, it must be a file type problem.
