Hello,

I can't open my flash drive it says "H:\ is unavailable. If the location is on this PC, make sure the device or drive is connected or the disc is inserted, and then try again(......). If the location still can't be found, it might have been moved or deleted." How can I fix this? There's no format option appears. Please help.

Hello cha,

Please, follow these steps:
1. Open command prompt
2. Type the following:
attrib -s -h -r X: /*.* / s / d Then hit "Enter" and wait about 30 seconds
Be careful! Respect the spaces between words and script. Change the letter X with that has been assigned to the USB device on your PC (that you can see it in My Computer or Computer if it looks. It can be anything, depends on each computer.
3. Finally, browse the flash drive and delete the "RECYCLER" folder and if there is another one called "Autorun" you have to delete that too.

Hope this helps.
