Who knows.

Maybe you should go over to his place with the drive and poke around on his system, see what you can figure out.

After I gave the thumb drive to my friend and he discovered that his computers would not display the files, he returned it to me and I put the drive into my computer and was able to view the files and even open one of the Word Documents.  Everything was as it should be on my computer.  Why not on his?

Did you wait for the files to finish transferring? If there was a lot of them it would take a minute or 3. Clicking on the remove drive before the files finished could result in the transfer being canceled.

I copied the files from my documents folder on my computer by selecting the folder in My Documents, copying to the clip board, Alt Tab to the thumb drive and pasting.  Then I closed My Documents and the thumb drive, went to the System Tray and went to Safely Remove Device button, hit it and arrowed down to the drive and hit Enter and waited until it said that it is now safe to remove the drive.

Right, but how did they get onto the thumb drive?

Was it from a dropbox folder on a computer?

The files are from a thumb drive.  Actually, two thumb drives were tried, the second one being brand new.

The other thing that I was thinking, are these files being copied from dropbox? If so, sometimes there is a dialog box that opens to ask you if you want to copy the files without their properties. If you don’t know this is open it will copy the folders but not the files. Just a suggestion. If you need any help, reply

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 flashdrive 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.

Are you using the built-in security app so come on those little drives? If I was you I would do a full format on the drive then copy the files. If it’s not the little security app on the drive. I’ve never seen this before and I don’t know what you can do.

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.
