Flash drive problem

I tried to access important document files on my flash drive and a message that it isn't formatted comes up. I tried scanning the drive, but can't scan it because the message that it is not formatted again comes up. I tried to copy what was on the drive, but nothing is copying no matter what I try. Yesterday, there was barely any space used, but today the properties show that ALL of the space on the 1G drive is used. I don't know how to get the files off. Is there anything I can do? Thanks for your help.

  1. You've already had this question answered. Asking it again won't change reality so you can get an answer you like.

    Don't even know why you said this. I DID NOT ask the question twice. Maybe they accidentally posted it twice, but I didn't ask it twice.

    You actually asked it three times.

    Two of those seem to be an accidental double post (same thread creation time), but the third (this one) was posted almost two hours later with different title and text. So yes, you did ask this same question on two distinct occasions.
  4. Then everytime they are emailing me to reply, they are Re-posting the question. No problem, I got it taken care of anyway.
  5. May I ask how you fixed it? I'm curious because some other people get the same issue as you.
