I have been trying to copy photos and video files from my laptop to a flash drive. Every flash drive I've tried seems to corrupt the same said files.
I've tried three flash drives, all of differing file systems (exFAT, Fat32, NTFS), and brand quality. The thing is, it transferred all the files successfully to my external hard drive and they are able to be opened and viewed, both from the laptop and external hard drive.
I thought maybe I needed NTFS since that's my external and laptop file system. So I tried to format both of the low-end flash drives since the high-end brand is not mine. It went for almost 19 hours, only to end in saying it cannot format the drive.
I have read many different posts and have tried many things. These same files have given me the "might be corrupt" and "cannot copy with properties" errors. But, as I said, they are able to be viewed and opened from the laptop and external hard drive.
I haven't tried TeraCopy yet, but will try that next. Still, any help or advice or questions would be appreciated.
