Hi. (Sorry in advance for my english)
I have a USB stick which is supposed to be 128GB. I saved some movies in it (they work fine), but I can't save any more files, and I should still have space left.

Whenever I try to save another movie, It shows me that is loading to the USB stick, but it takes a lot of time, and when it's finally done and I open the folder, it has nothing inside. It just saves empty folders. Oh, and I found out that in FAT32 you can only save files <4GB, but the movies I try to save are <2GB ): So I don't know what's going on.

When I right click it --> properties, it says "Capacity: 124 GB, Used space: 32 GB, Available space: 92 GB"
If the USB stick has less space than stated, shouldn't it say that there's not enough capacity? 

Thanks for helping heart.gif heart.gif

What Operating System are you using - Windows 7/8/8.1/10?

Also which USB stick are you using? - Brand/Model?


From the information you've provided, it mostly seems like your drive is corrupted, which may be fixable.


I would first copy all the files from the USB stick to your computer (for backup) anyways.

:welcome:    Lucy900,


In addition to the above, is this a new USB stick or one that you have previously used without issue, if at all possible post a link for the USB stick and preferably from the place of purchase.
