Hello, I am unable to access files in my USB HDD after a few minutes of operating it.
At most times, it happens when the device is damaged or infected with unknown virus.
In this case, you can try to fix corrupted USB using CMD to regain access to your device and data. Press Windows Key X button, in the power users menu, select the Command Prompt (Admin) option. Click Yes when you are presented with a UAC window requesting permission to launch the Command Prompt as Administrator. In the new Command Prompt window, type chkdsk E: /f /r /x and hit Enter. This command will make chkdsk to check and repair any possible errors, bad sectors or corruptions on the USB flash drive. Safely eject and reconnect the USB flash drive to see if it can be opened.
At most times, the problem is caused by drive letter confliction or USB driver issues. Your flash drive will now be accessible at the new folder location you specified.
