Hello Veeresh,

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. Mind the spaces between words and script. You have to change the drive letter X with that has been assigned to your USB device on the PC (the one you can see it in My 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 is helpful.
