I have a 16gb flash drive. It seems to work fine when I put the data on it, but when I open it later(i.e. after taking it out and then re-inserting it), the data has changed or disappeared, esp the files in the folders! For instance, I put my pictures folder on it - when I opened it another day, there was only no file in the folder.!
In case of simple files, the size of file changes to zero on reinserting the flash drive.
I guess there is some problem with the file system of the flash drive.
I've also tried formatting the drive but problem still continues.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Make sure you always use the safely remove hardware option to eject the drive to ensure that the data is kept safe, if you already do that and the drive creates the same problem on multiple computers it might be a bad flash drive.

If you have already tried to format the drive and its doing the samething on multiple computers, i sould suggest you to call sandisk support number for the help because it seems that there is some problem with the drive.
