    Pen Drive and external hard drive keep getting errors!


    Pen Drive and external hard drive keep getting errors! So I select to fix the problem scandrive recommended scan and repair. But there's never anything wrong with them it reports! And it takes ages to scan it takes 10-15 minutes for 32GB pen drive. Windows 7 Pro done it in a flash! Anything I can do about it. Thank you in advance.

    The times that I have seen these errors appear are usually when I have been careless and removed the drive by unplugging it before it was safe to do so. Like you I find the scan appears to find no errors and the drive works fine.

    I now make a point of always clicking the tray icon "Safely Remove Hardware and Eject Media" and waiting for the message to say that it is safe to remove the drive. This seems to stop the occurrence of those errors.

    Hope this helps you!
