Question about SanDisk Cruzer Micro 8GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive

1 Answer

I have used this flash drive for two days and saved a couple of things. Today i opened a file on the flash drive and made some changes to it. I went to save it back to the flash drive and it said the file cannot be saved, make sure that the disk you want to save the file to is not full, write-protected, or damaged. I have 7.4 gb of free space left. What is the problem?

Were the changes you made to the drive only with text changes or did you do some attribute changes? If you haven't make attribute changes, then it should save the file without problems unless the total size of the file exceeds the drives total free space, or if the drive is write-protected or damaged. If you can't get it to run any other way, then you might consider reformattting it and starting over. If you have important files you wish to save, then you will need to run some kind of drive data recovery software like BadCopy Pro v4.10.Build.1215 (or similiar) PRIOR to formatting. This program will recover data on just about any media or drive including floppies, usb thumb drives, hard drives, etc.

How do use Verbatim to back up files


Which operating system ?

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 of your hard drive, how much space is actually taken, plus the space used by your operating system. If your hard drive 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 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

Yes, power cuts, surges, low voltage, variable voltage and any sudden changes in electricity can cause a hard drive to fail or act improperly. If the drive had failed, though, you wouldn't be able to see or do anything with the drive now. Are you able to save anything to the drive now? can you browse to it and save a small text file or document? If you can save a document and read it from the drive now, the drive isn't completely failed, and your data may still be recoverable.
