SOOOO I was at a friends house who was having some issues and i pooped in my usb drive (3.0) of goodies and in safe mode attempted to open the drive and it was not there. I checked drivers all good so then rebooted back to normal startup still usb drive is not seen. I could not find in disk utilities either. So I made an assumption that my drive was just corrupt (magically) so I plugged in my back up and the same results. I plugged them into my machine at home and they are dead. no matter where I try tuse them they do not show up. Is it possible that malware has killed them or a short? Bad power supply?
the machine that it happened on
8 Gb Ram
it was upgraded from 8.1
Any Ideas would be greatly appreciated. I have back ups of all my tools so no problem there I am just looking to tap the power of Bleeping Computer
