  1. Guys, I Just bought this USB. (Kingston data traveller 4gb) After buying the USB, i put some files in it and then removed it from the laptop properly. But when I put it back, the files are gone! But when I checked the properties, the used space is still the same but I can't seem to see the files I put in there! I tried putting a single picture in the usb and removed it, when i put I plugged it in the laptop, the image is still the there but the previous files I put there was really gone! Crap, I really need those files. Help please. Thanks.

    additional info:BTW, I've tried searching the web and it seems that i'am not alone!

    and also, every file i put into the folder i made keeps on disappearing whenever I remove the usb and put it back again. T_T

    Hey guys, problem solved. All I had to do was format the USB. And I also tried to recover my files using EASEUS but no luck. My files are gone forever. :( But at least I've learned my lesson, Always back-up your files. My USB is fixed but my files are gone. :(
