USB flash drives are used to transport data between computer systems. Because it is essentially just a small hard drive, the USB device can get damaged and slow down in performance due to viruses or damaged files. To fix these problems and fix the USB flash drive, you must reformat the drive. This removes all data from the unit, returning it to factory settings. Instructions
Plug the USB flash drive into a USB port on the computer system. Close any autoplay windows that may load onto the screen.
Click “Start” and then “(My)Computer.” Right-click the removable device icon that appears on the screen.
Select “Format” from the dropdown menu. This loads a format options screen.
Click “Yes” and the computer formats the USB flash drive, eliminating the damaged content and returning it to factory settings.
