I had a folder from my documents and i placed it into the director of my 2gb thumb/flash drive and it said it moved, then at the end it said that it couldn't move the folder. I just watched it move all these files to the drive that are now gone, just because the folder itself wouldn't move. Any help or ideas will be appreciated, Thank you.

It should have created a copy...I usually don't pay attention to such, but I think that's what happens.

The files are either moved, copied...or in one location or both.

They don't just disappear, unless one of your drives is defective.

Try running chkdsk /r on the flash drive.
