Hi, Newbie question here.
About a year ago I bought a 64GB Sandisk Cruzer Glide USB drive and it worked fine-- I ended up loading a total of about 5GB of files in it. Then I didn’t need it for several months, so it just lay around. Yesterday I tried to move a file (less than 5MB) from my Mac to it, and got the message that it was full. The Mac Inspector reports that the Cruzer contains 64G of files and no free space. Transferring the Cruzer to my PC, the Properties tab reports 59.6GB used space and 64KB free space.
Can anyone tell me what might be wrong with it and how to fix it? I’ve searched this forum but turned up nothing.
PS I have an old Thinkpad 600E running Windows 95 that I use to run several legacy programs like QuarkXpress whose current versions I can’t afford to purchase today. The Windows 95 OS running on it doesn’t support USB, so I installed a driver I found online to make the Thinkpad’s USB port work via DOS, and I used the Cruzer Glide to move files between that Thinkpad and other computers, with no problems. I mention this because it might be important-- it might’ve changed something on the Glide; I remember the DOS USB port recognized the Glide, but not my Cruzer Facet.
Thanks in advance for your help!
