Portable device on win XP system RRS feed

  • Question

  • When mounting portable USB device to different public computers with win XP, often files and folders become inaccessible. What's going on?

    Fx. A file or a folder with files are downloaded to USB device. After completion the data is moved out of "Download" folder to another folder also on USB device. And then it all becomes inaccessible!

    The data is still there and intact but only fx. a file recovery program can copy them to another partition. Then the original partition can be formatted. But the problem still occur.

  • Either the public computer are configured not to accept USB or there is missing driver.

    Ask the public computer administrator for support. It is nearly impossible to troubleshoot problem remotely and for you without admin rights.
