How to save to USB Flash drive


You just insert the USB flash drive into a USB port on your PC, and the operating system should recognise it. Most are sold pre-formatted, but occasionally you get one which has to be formatted before use. To do this right-click on the name of the USB drive in File Explorer, then select Format.

Then you can either Copy and Paste files and folders from the PC to the USB drive, or drag and drop as you would to any other 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."

Can't find back-up folder


You might have to create a folder you can do this by right clicking in the backup destination drive selecting new folder and name it lets say Back Up 2012 for the excercise.

Determine how much space you need.

The first step in backing up your hard drive is to figure out how much space you will need to back up all of your files.


You can do this in a couple of ways.

Find out how large the hard drive is on your computer first to see if you can back up the whole thing. Click on "My Computer," right-click the "C" drive and select "Properties."


This shows the approximate size of your hard drive, how much space is actually taken, plus the space used by your operating system.


If your hard drive size is manageable (the space actually taken), back up the whole thing.

Your second option is to create a file called "Backup" and copy all of your important files into it.


Right-click on the folder once everything is copied over and choose "Properties" to find out the size of the folder.

This is how much space you will need to back up your important files only.


Choose a backup method.

Choose either an external hard drive, data disks (CDs, for example) or use an online backup service.



Plug the flash drive or the External Hard drive into your computer's rectangular-shaped USB drive.

Wait for Windows to recognize the system.


Windows operating systems use "plug and play" technology, which means that computer peripherals like USB flash drives can be recognized instantly by the system without further need for device configuration.


Open the drive on your computer.

Open the "My Computer" directory if using Windows XP or the "Computer" directory if using


Windows 7 or Vista. Locate the flash drive letter and icon under the section named "Devices with Removable Storage." Double-click the flash drive icon to open it.


Transfer files to the flash drive.

Click the "Restore" button in the top-right corner of the "Computer" or "My Computer" directory to shrink the window so that you can view your computer's desktop background.


Open the folders or locations of the files which you want to save to the flash drive.

Click and drag with your mouse each of the files and folders you want to save to the flash drive over to the empty space in the "My Computer" or "Computer" window.


Release the mouse button to let the files "drop."

Close the windows and directory locations when finished.


Save files directly onto the flash drive. From an open file (i.e. text, spreadsheet, image files. etc.), click the "File" menu and "Save as" option.


Select the "My Computer" or "Computer" directory in the drop-down menu at the top of the "Save As" box. Double-click the flash drive letter under the "Devices with Removable Storage" section.


Click the "Save" button to save the file onto the flash drive.

Close the windows and files when finished


Hope this helps.

My PC could not save file in my flash drive where as folder can.


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!
