Re: Restoring to factory settings

Just so you know, it's yet another 4 years later, and this thread is still helpful, thanks to you. I didn't format my cruzer drive, I deleted a bunch of folders off it using BeyondCompare after copying them to my hard drive. Then I notices one of the folders was the System folder and was hidden. I wasn't sure whether these were just normal files and folders and whether everything would be back to normal if I just copied them back (they are not in my recycle bin), or whether in fact they required fixed locations on the flash drive ( recall the days of DOS and autoexec.bat and config.sys). From what I'm reading here, it appears they are normal files, so I should be fine.

"SanDisk hasn't made U3 drives since 2008." Doesn't mean people don't still have them. People still have and use Windows XP, too. Rebeccah

Re: Restoring to factory settings

XP is unsupported too Rebeccah.  ;-)

 

I have 2 U3 drives, both working, and I'm sorry they are no longer made.
