Question What do I do if my flashdrive wont show me data it supposedly copied?


I have a flashdrive and an older laptop (An ACER Aspire 5532) and am trying to recover pictures from it. The problem with it is when I go to copy pictures to a brand new -blank- 64gb flashdrive, it tells me its copying all 26.4gb of data to it. Then after when I go to check the flashdrive it is empty with no pictures but tells me there are 26.4gb of space being taken up and around 37 gigabytes free.

Is there any solution to a problem like this? and Is there anything I can do with the laptop or flashdrive that can help me actually view the content?

Please can you provide screnshots.

When you say recover, do you mean the old flashdrive is damaged?

Don't like what I say, ban me!

Did you try attatching it to another computer? Did you check for any hidden files?
