How to Restore Flash Drive to Original Vault As New

Drive lets me view and download files from my vault but will not allow me to delete. I want to copy the necessary files for the vault system from the flash drive to a temporary location and then reformat the drive so I can then copy the files needed to operate the vault back to the flash drive. Do I need files other than RunSanDiskSecureAccess_Win.exe ?

Stating the question another way, what is on the flash drive as purchased and before first use?

Do I need to create any directories like the “My Vaults” directory or does the above .exe file do all that the first time it is run?

See the main page of SanDisk.

Thanks. I figured out later the way to go was download version 2 and install it on the flash after reformatting. So far so good (although the user interface still leaves a lot to be desired). However, sometimes my Macbook will not release the flash even after I close all programs. So I have to reboot. That is how the flash got corrupted before. So I think the flash is not dependable enough to use for backups.

Hi Rosbo, the guide is actually straight forward. Were you able to complete the steps already? Just checking.
