USB issue and dilemma
Okay I am out of ideas, here's the gist of the story;
I have an eight gig USB drive, it has all my school stuff in it, tonight I was inserting a 500MB program onto the drive, I've done this before with 2GB program (Altera) and it worked fine, but this time the drive froze and then had an I/O error. I have read up on Google and the main fix to this is to reformat. I would HATE to do this as I have over 5gb of school-related stuff in my USB from school-programs to labs, etc.
My other resort is to use cmd line to copy off USB to laptop but cannot find a place that can do this specifically. My USB drive is F. Anyone help please?
PS. It also takes like 1~ minute for the laptop to detect the USB, tried this with PC also and it was about the same, and the files cannot be deleted for some reason, it says I/O error.
