Specs: Windows 10
Thank you. i appreciate the help. i tried reformatting it, it didn't help. I think something must have been broken in it. I went & bought a bigger new one. But, my laptop didn't prompt a format- so your info on formatting did help me there. I am back up running smooth. Thanks again!

You shouldn't be backing up important data to a USB flash drive.

Echoing riider...re’ NOT using usb flash drive/memory sticks to store important “stuff”.

Use an external HDD and maybe DVD too; especially if some of that “stuff” is family photos and similar items?

USB sticks are really intended for convenient porting of stuff from-to wherever knowing that the data is safe elsewhere. The sticks are more reliable than in the past, but they can and do fail at anytime...

I had a similar issue and instead put it in a USB card reader and then used that to get the card formatted.
