I HAVE A SAN DISK CRUZOR BLADE 16G WHICH APPARENTLY HAS 6G RECORDED IN 38 FILES PLUS 2 HIDDEN FILES ,WHICH ARE NOT VISIBLE WHEN THE USB IS ACCESSED EITHER THROUGH A LAPTOP OR A TV USB PORT. I THINK THEY ARE VIDEO FILES RECORDED FROM THE TV. CAN ANYONE TELL ME HOW I CAN SEE THESE FILES SO I CAN DELETE THEM?

✔ Best Answer

If you want to get rid of everything you can always format it. Or if you want to selectively delete some files--and assuming the files on it are hidden--you need to enable the option to show hidden files from TOOLS--FOLDER OPTIONS from the toolbar when you open the drive. That's the method for XP. It should be similar for Vista.

The easiest way is to show hidden files and delete them as DAVEINCAPS stated. Returning 6GB files from a thumb drive is gonna take some time.
