Can a missing folder be recovered from a flash drive?

Technician's Assistant: What's the make/model of your device? How old is it?

It is an SP 16 gig device FAT 32 format

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?

I just noticed it. I was cutting and pasting from my pictures folder on the hard drive to the flash when I realized the entire folder disappeared.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Electronics Expert to know before I connect you?

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
