this can be done by altering the NTFS settings for the drive.

Do you know anything about NTFS -- if not start reading ....

That can be the case as you pointed out Jo. But I was suspecting he may have one of those Encryptor data traveler drives.

I think that <everyone> Full control would not impact the encryption feature,
especially if carefully applied to only one files+fold choice

Have you tried Jo's suggestion? It may be just as simple as rights issue provided the flash drive is formatted with NTFS system.

Edit:
Check your USB for any virus/malware infections using Avira/Avast/AVG (whichever you may have) + malwarebytes, if they don't catch anything and if Jo's idea doesn't work, the only other viable solution seems to be formatting the USB drive after taking out your data to hdd, and once the USB is formatted move the data back on it.
