I can't find the files I stored on a Nexxtech flash drive. Windows explorer doesn't show any files on the removable disk but it shows that 2 gbs of file storage is used. I checked the drive for problems and it didn't report any. How can I retrieve my files?

If i am right, your Flash is infected by virus and so files or folders are hidden, to unhide the hidden files and folders, you need to do a little trick or simple as the settings. Here we go.. Insert the flash drive - Open it in Windows Explorer - Click on the Tools on the Menu - Select Folder options - Click on the View Tab - next scroll down and select the Show Hidden Files - and again just below the show hidden files, you will see another option which is checked Hide Protected Operating Files, uncheck it and click yes. Hope this will help you, if you can follow this tip, please refer to my tip Show Hidden Files and Folder_1. Good luck..

Hi , My san disk 4gb cruzer micro flash drive has the LED on when i plug it to any computer but doesn't show up on My Computer , Disk management or Device manager . I have tried 3 different desktop...


Files on a flash drive canbe corrupted if it is not removed from the USB port properly.
Before removing the flash drive click on the Safely Remove Hardware icon andthen click on the flash drive you want to remove and then remove the flashdrive when the computer message says it is Safe to remove.
To restore the flash drive to working order you need to format the flash drive,BUT you will lose the data stored on the flash drive.
If you need the data on the flash drive these WEB sites may help: -

Some file show on memory card when scan with PC (antivirus). but not show file when explore or open it


They are hidden or system files, and you have to change settings in order to see them.

To see hidden files:
1.
On the Tools menu in Windows Explorer, click Folder Options.
2.
Click the View tab.
3.
Under Hidden files and folders, click Show hidden files and folders.

I put the flashdrive into the port but I do not understand how to get the work onto the drive? It said that I connected it right but it did not show me how to copy or download work onto the flashdrive.


A flashdrive shows up in Windows as a new drive letter un Windows Explorer.
If you right click on My Computer (XP), Computer (Windows 7) you can select explore or open.
The dialog box that opens is split in half. the left side shows the "drives" and corresponding letters. Typically, you will have a Local C:\ for your Primary hard drive, CD Drive D:\ for a CD/DVD and the flash drive will show as Removable Drive E:.
To copy work to the new flash drive, you can select save as from your program and select the drive letter that you saw the removable drive named in Windows explorer.

You can also, from the folder named My Documents, copy the file by right clicking on it, then selecting the flash drive letter and pasting into the empty window associated with it on the right side of the divided Windows Explorer screen.
