Thank you
Hello,
  • Right-click on your pen-drive > Select the option Explore > if it gets opened, backup your data and format it.
  • If the problem still exists then click on Start > In the search box, type diskmgmt.msc and click on OK.
  • Disk Management will be opened.
  • Then right-click on your pendrive > Select Change Drive Letter and Path > Click on Change and assign different drive letter.
  • Change the volume name by right-clicking on your pendrive and select properties.


Enter your volume name.

Good Luck!

Hi,

For me it's still not working. Though, I change the name of the drive, I am not able to change the volume name. The error comes as "Volume label is invalid".

Also I've tried the above formatting tool. But it didn't work.

Please guide!

If you really believe it's a virus, I strongly suggest that you create a new thread and post it in the virus/security section of the forum and please, this time give the full details so that we don't waste your time.

Did you try opening it in a different computer.

If in the same computer, try using other USB ports.

Sometimes it happens, pendrives don't open in some USB ports and they do in others.
