  1. Corrupted folder on pen drive


    Hello, I used to have a folder on my pen drive but a few days ago it got corrupted i think. Basically, it's no longer an actual folder. On my second laptop it says its a fun2save file. And on my main laptop it's not recognized and the file size is 16 kb. I also have a FOUND.000 folder with chk fragment files.


    Does anyone know why this happened? Did the folder actually got corrupted. Can I recover the files?

    :)

  2. related to pen drive

    Hi,

    A Pen Drive or USB is a data storage device that includes flash memory with an Integrated USB interface, and is a Plug and play device. That said, your computer should easily recognize your Pen Drive without any issues. A software might be blocking it, or
    an update is needed for it to work properly. However, let us isolate your concern by providing the answers to these questions:

    • Is your Pen Drive working in other devices?
    • Were there any changes (Updates, software installation) made prior to the issues?
    • Have you tried using another Pen Drive on your computer?

    in the meantime, we suggest that you insert your Pen Drive, and check if there's any error(s) in Device Manager.

    We're looking forward to your response.

  3. Save on Pen drive

    Hello jp123_959

    My name is Ben

    Independent Adviser

    I hope to help

    To save files on a Pen drive, we can follow the following steps:

    • We introduce the Pen drive in the USB port of our computer.

    • Now we are going to look for the folder of our computer where we have the file that we want to save, we open it, inside it we "click" with the right button of the mouse on the file and in the options of the menu that shows us, click on "Send to".

    • In the options that show us, we look for the one referring to our Pen drive and click on it. The transfer of the file to the Pen drive will start.

    • When the operation is finished, all that remains is to remove the USB device, following the instructions we gave in the day to do it in a safe way. (Manual to extract USB devices).

    If we want to deposit it in a certain folder of the Pen drive, instead of using "Send to" we can use the "Copy" option, then we access the Pen drive, open the folder and inside it, we click with the right button of the mouse and in the options of the menu that
    shows us click on "Paste".

    With both methods, we will have a copy of that file or folder stored in our Pen drive.

    If you still have problems to save information on your USB it is possible that it is damaged by a virus, for this, it formats the Pendrive.

    Corrupted folder on pen drive

    Unable to delete a folder - Invalid folder name


    Suggestion:
    1. Run chkdsk x: /r to make sure that there's no HD corruption.
      x: is the drive containing the folder you want to delete.
    2. Try to delete the folder again. If still does not work, go to step 3.
    3. Download: Download - Linux Mint and create a bootable USB using: Rufus - Create bootable USB
    4. Boot up with Linux Mint and try to delete the folder again.
      NOTE: Unlike WinPE. Linux does not have any Windows permission imposed to it so it is easier to delete.
