The Review:
It was on sale ' great buy down to 29.95$ - The flash drive is supposed to hold close to 64GB of data. Supposedly, it comes packaged ready to use as nothing says you need to format first. Well ok, we did just that. I copied a total of just over 35 Gig of data (a back up off a testing computer) and first of all it said that it would take 30 hours to copy. Two thirds of the way in the copy it started to come up with the error (cannot copy files, disk is protected). No matter what I did I could not copy any more files to the flash drive. Needless to say it got very frustrating. I then tried to delete the files that I already had copied to the drive and guess what, it said that the drive was protected and I could not delete any files. I also could not format the drive to start all over. At this point I did a look up on the web to see if anyone else had this problem and lo and behold I was not the first. The solution was to get a hold of the company through their website and within hours I received a link to a fix for the problem. I also found out that unfortunately there was a batch of these 64 GB flash drives that somehow ended up with this unfortunate problem but because these drives have been shipped all over, they could not be automatically recalled.

The cure fixed my drives and they all seem to work just fine
