No it’s a little program that comes on the thumb drive itself most of the bigger thumb drive suppliers supply these little security programs on the drive. I always format the drive completely and get rid of all that stuff before I use it. Has nothing to do with windows. If you get a brand new flash drive put it in your USB port. And open it you’ll see an application and a couple files that come on the hard drive. And sometimes these can cause issues. Substitute thumb drive everywhere says hard drive. :-) I’m using dictation on my phone…toggle quoted messageShow quoted text

Randy, Is this security thing a default on all windows computers? If so, wouldn’t the subfolders not be shown? Could this be bypassed by running a scan on the drive when it is plugged in?

I don't know if this is happening, but is it possible for Windows 10 Security to be putting these files in quarantine as soon as the flash drive is plugged in?
How about if you zipped the folders up and sent them as an attachment in an email?
Take care and stay safe. Mike.

I am using Windows 7 and the latest JAWS on a desktop computer that I copied a folder with 2 subfolders containing Word documents onto a flash drive. I gave a friend this flash drive . the first sub folder has over 200 Word documents, some .doc and some .docx files and the second sub folder had 11 Word documents in it. My friend has 2 laptops both running Windows 10. He is not a JAWS user as he is sighted. When he plugs this flash drive in to either of these computers, he can see the folder and subfolders, but when he opens the subfolders, there are no files in them. Can any one please tell me why? We first thought that the flash drive was corrupt, so he gave me another drive to try and the same thing happened. Both drives work fine on my computer, that is I can access the files.
