One problem with returning the drive (San Disk 256 GB Cruzer)- it has sensitive information. Is there a work around without returning the device? I purchased this at Costco within the last month (or thereabouts); I think I have the receipt. Without the receipt, I guess this is a no-go from the start, correct?
For the record, the first one ( a few more months back) has not had this issue.
Device details: SanDisk Cruzer Glide 3.0 1.00 [250.45 GB] (489160704 512-byte sectors)

Costco should be able to check your purchase on their system even without a receipt.
You can also return the drive to SanDisk for a replacement. And with them it is possible to smash the drive with a hammer before returning it. Do verify that with them before doing it.
