I have a no name flash drive (got it on eBay) that holds 100 and some GB's.

I reformatted the flash drive (Fat32) using whatever Windows XP has, I don't know what you call it.
I'll copy some folders to the flash drive but when I put the flash drive into my other computer the Backup folder is empty.

I tried copying 3 folders and when I put the flash drive into my other computer 2 of the folders are empty and cannot be deleted.

To delete the folder I reformat the flash drive but I'd like to find a solution to why some folders are empty and un-deletable.
I know you guys are busy and I always appreciate the good help I receive from you.

^ And if that doesn't work, it might just be the Flash drive that's gone bad.
