Okay so I finished transferring files to my new 128GB USB flash drive. I also wanted to create a backup, so I hooked up an old portable 1TB external hard drive.
While copying files directly from the flash drive to the EHD.. the transfer eventually completed, but the USB drive still flashed for 30 minutes. Once the flashing finally stopped, I tried ejecting it through 'My Computer'.. ejecting it twice for good measure, just to make sure it ejected right the first time. The solid light never went off, but I think that is normal for this particular product.
I never thought to check the EHD light, only because it has never given me any 'eject' options before. I just shut down my computer and pull it out that way.
Anyway, a couple days later I plug in the USB flash drive, and my computer suddenly wants to check the drive for errors? I selected the 1st option and hit start:
(I'm on Windows 7, this is just an example pic)
..about 30 minutes later I got this message:
So basically, I'm wondering if I lost or corrupted any files during this whole transfer/copying process? I have so many files on it, I am unable to tell what or where the damage (if any) has been done.
