I use a computer that has two accounts on it and I want to use my flashdrive to save some of the documents from one of the accounts. However, the flashdrive comes up on the first account only, but not the second account (which is the one that I almost always use), the second account almost acts like a security buffer from the first account. Is there any way I can get the second account to recognize the flashdrive so I can put documents saved on that second account (instead of it being recognized in the first account) directly to the flashdrive?

What I have been doing up to date is emailing docs from the second account and re-log on the email on the first account, then downloading it in order to save the docs to the flashdrive. It takes too much time and I have too many documents to save to the flashdrive without having this problem compounding it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you and have a great day.
