Question about Lexar JumpDrive S50 - USB flash drive - 4 GB

1 Answer

Lexar Jumpdrive S50 16 GB has source folder taking up 8 GB

While trying to transfer a folder with 8 GBs onto the 16 GB jumpdrive, there was not enough space to hold all of the data. The Jumpdrive is new and ever been used. I found a folder called "Source' that takes up 8 GB of memory - what is this folder? Why is it there? What is Lexar trying to do by selling a Jumpdrive that they say is 16 GB and then only providing 8 GB of useful space?

SOURCE: Lexar JumpDrive S70 - USB Flash Drive - 8 GB disconnect

this could a problem with an unstable driver you might have to unistall the driver restart your computer then reinstall the driver

if you motherboard came with a disk the drivers could be on it
otherwise you might need to download them
or a bad dusty or loose usb lead connection

click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll down universal serial bus controllers you could see a yellow question / exclamation mark? ! or a red X

you will need to update/reinstall drivers

right click to reinstall drivers


if you can see your usb drive but its not working

ports (com&lpt) right click update driver if this fails to fix the problem


check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red white green black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems to a computer and its parts

you will need to download one try one of these

Upload the files to the jumpdrive. Remove jumpdrive from computer 1 and insert in computer 2. When computer 2 recognizes the jumpdrive, copy the files to a directory folder where you want to save the music. Unplug the jumpdrive.

I deleted all the viewable files and folders on my lexar firefly jumpdrive, but it says that i still have almost all my memory used up. how can I clear it?


You may have hidden or locked files. If the files are locked, you'll see an icon to unlock them when you open the JumpDrive in Windows Explorer. If the files are hidden, try and show them: Tools-->Folder Options-->View--> Left Click "show hidden files and folders" Good Luck!
