Questions & Answers

Can you tell me if this FD has a light that lights up when you upload / download files. Could you tell me where the light is located... Do you wish it to be at the end, the bottom, or at the top?

A light does flash when it is downloaded or uploaded, but not when it is down- or up-loaded. Slider buttons are used to extend the USB out of its protective casing, and the flashing light is situated on the slider button. After you select to remove your temporary storage device in a safe way, the light flashes.

it possible to attach it with a keychain?

It is not possible to attach a key chain to this flash drive, unless the key chain is a small cable type. In this case, the provided stud is placed in the corner, and there isn't enough space behind it to make the tight turn out of the cavities. For my rubber band, I used it to hang it.

How can I use this to back up all of my stuff on my laptop so I can reinstall windows 7 without losing any of my data? Where can I get information about how big to use a stick?

There are only two things you should remember. 1) you can't just copy files to back up the computer 2) the 256GB drive is not enough. For a 64 GB transfer, I did it in 4 hours. To copy the whole 256 GB will take 16 hours. It's a pretty slow device.
If your laptop has USB 3, you can do it in 15 minutes. With 0, the SanDisk 256GB Extreme PRO would be a better option. As opposed to the one that will take 240 minutes to fill, this will take only 100 minutes. The one costing a little less than double has a 16-hour work schedule AND costs less than double the one here.

Can you let me know what size to buy or what capacity I should purchase when I want to download slides?

When you put all your slides together in a folder, or if there are folders in the folder, you can then right click on that folder, select properties, and the size of the folder will be displayed. When no more slides are to be added, you can purchase the space needed for that folder, however I will only use about 80% of my storage.

It's not a good idea to put any important files or mission-critical information on the web

The SanDisk drives we have been buying for the past three years have failed about half of the time. The newest drives I've received also have failed. I purchased again in October 2017 believing SanDisk had fixed these problems. I get a "you must format the drive" error while viewing files, or the contents of the drives suddenly disappear. The drives are unusable unless unplugged and replugged, and the same thing happens again. In spite of a few spotty failures there, I noticed that we've had better luck with PNY drives, so I'm switching over to Toshiba portable hard drives. It seems that flash drives larger than 32-64 GB are no longer reliable.

A 32GB memory card is tagged as a 128GB memory card

A very disappointing experience. Over the past week, I have uploaded pictures to the device using the flash drive that I received. My shock was deep when I received an error message that stated that my drive was full and only had 31 GB. Approximately 9GB of total space is available. Double checked the back of the drive where the details are printed; it is indeed a 128GB drive, not a 32GB drive. I am far beyond my return period since I didn't start using it until recently, and I confirmed that it worked only upon receipt. SanDisk never expected that I would need to make sure that the size I paid for was the one that I got and not a smaller one posed as a 128GB one. My view of SanDisk products has been soured by this. As someone who owns 5 other SanDisk drives and has not had any issues with them in the past, I considered them to be reliable products.

I advise you not to purchase

This is a fake item. This is the best 36 I could come up with. Despite having 8gb of photos and videos in it, it did not have enough room for them. The 29th one fit however. A maximum of 8GB is available. In most cases, it is a 32 GB with the outside showing 128 GB and the computer showing 128 GB. In any case, you get an error when you use more than 32. What a bizarre thing for Amazon to allow.

It's too slow to write at least 10 MB/s

Faster than a snail's pace; You can save 72 gigabytes when you save the file. Transferring a zip file to this flash drive was currently moving at around 5 Mbps, and the transfer time indicated it would take 5 hours 30 minutes. The USB 2. 0 port on my computer is supported. Settings, I changed the setting to Performance [But the transfer rate didn't increase]. It is imperative that you know the Read and Write Speed before you buy any flash drive. My recommendation for a USB 3. 0 drive is the Patriot Supersonic Rage 2 [400 mb/s read, 200 mb/s write] or the Patriot Magnum 2 [400mb/s read, 300mb/s write]. [Audio output is backwards compatible with.

An example of a hardware design fault from the past

The SanDisk Tech Support was just on the phone with me, so I can tell you that I WILL NEVER buy another device from this company again! I randomly acquired the "write protected" fault this week on my SanDisk Cruzer 128GB, and now I cannot read from, write to, format, or fix it. I tried all of the applicable online solutions that work for other USB drives with this issue, but they did not help. In an FAQ on Sandisk's website I found an indication that the drive can go into "write protection" mode sometimes, and that once it is in that mode there is no way to restore it. It is not a fix! (Link removed to comply with Amazon review guidelines. ) The companies say it's the product's fault! But they're still not willing to accept responsibility. In my case, the company paid a 25% credit for their online store instead of servicing or replacing my device, since the manufacturer's warranty is only three years. a pity! Why on earth would I want another stick with such extensive defects? !br>br>Warranties aren't useful when you're talking about known defects! The reason for recalls is to stop selling faulty products. But in SanDisk's case, they continue to sell faulty products. In reviews, it has been discussed regarding new drives as well as older ones like mine. It is simply a time bomb that cannot be escaped -- maybe with months, maybe with years. It has been an issue, and will continue to be an issue. It is also worthwhile for you to shop around in the USB Flash Media marketplace and I suggest you do so as well.

There is a SLOW WIND and I am missing gigs

My system came with 128 GB of storage. In fact, I bought two of them and got the same results from both of them.

This is very slow. My first attempt at copying data read close to 8 megs of data. However, it did not take long before it drastically dropped speed, down to the point where it was transferring at 2 Mbps. Speeds of 71 MB per second. Now that I've reached this point, I've just given up. However, I am hoping to maintain at least 5MB of storage size. I did not expect 40Mbps transfer speeds or anything. I only transferred less than 5 GB when it was running at those speeds, as you can see from the photo. It gave me the same result as the other one I have as well. The computer I was using was my own, but I have another drive of a different model that started out at about 14 meg write speeds, but then slowed down to about 10 megs for the same exact files. I believe that the drive is definitely at work here. I'm not talking about the files or computer. I'm talking about the amount of data stored. Despite having only about 123 gigs of memory, 114 gigs would be read by a computer if it was converted back to the 1024 rating. Despite that, 5 gigs have been lost. My drives have less then a 1 gig difference when reading the bytes, so that means this drive is clearly not as large as it appears.

Unlike most of the other people on here, I know how to figure out how much data is on a drive. One megabyte is equal to 1024 kilobytes on a computer. The size of a gigabyte is 1024 megabytes. As you can see, the list goes on. There's a rule of thumb that the amount of data advertised is by the power of 10, so a meg equals 1000 kilo's. A computer will read the number lower even though it is 1000 based on the way the numbers are read. I was disappointed to find out I lost about 11 gigs in the conversion. . as a result, I am sending both mine back. Any backup I want to do will take so long if I have a transfer rate less than 3 Mbps. cannot justify read speeds because, by the time I got this far, I just did not think it was worth the time to test it. You can see the size of the drive as well as the speeds I experienced whenever I tried to copy files to it.
