Hi akgnivya,

Make sure you have no important files on the pendrive and format it. Try to copy some files. Does the issue persist? If so, run the Command Prompt and type the following command:
Chkdsk L: /r

Replace the L with the drive’s letter. Wait for the process to end and try to copy some files. If there is no change, update your anti virus and do complete system check. For more suggestions, check the link below:

Hope this helps
