How to Fix 080070052 Error on USB Flash Drives

When working with and adding files to your flash drive, you may experience error 0x80070052 or 080070052 indicating that your USB flash drive is full or that additional files cannot be created or saved. You may get this error even if you have too much storage left on your flash drive. The cause of this error is the way your flash drive is formatted. The regular FAT ( File Allocation Table ) or FAT16 format types can only manage a certain number of folders and files stored on the flash drive, but this can be fixed by formatting the pen drive to either FAT32 or NTFS (New Technology File System) Format .
