Hello,
My YNOT 1109, 8GB memory stick is recognised by my XP computer. Its "properties" indicate it is full but I cannot access any files. I have tried to reformat to remove all files but the procedure fails.
Any ideas ?

Do you have any other computers to try it in?

Did this drive just recently start doing this?

Hi EXT64.
I have tried four different computers plus one iMac. Does the same on all.
It worked for about a month prior to this so I have quite a bit of data stored on it which I can't access now.

Well, you could try

(the free version)

I have used it on (and seen others do likewise) mechanical drives exhibiting similar symptoms. No idea if it will help with yours, but worth a shot. May take a while though if the file system is shot.
