It is likely running a chkdisk on the FAT partition. Reformat your USB key to NTFS and this won't happen.

the solution has been pointed out several times in this thread:

either format the drive to ntfs, or remove the drive before booting

100% guaranteed, your money back, no questions?

No there isn't. Any time you change the file system "on the fly" there is risk of data loss.

Back up the data first or live with the drive scan.

run chkdsk /f /r <drive letter> in command prompt. Where <drive letter> is your driver letter followed by a colon, without angle brackets.

Repeat until it does not indicate it fixed errors.

You can convert the disk to NTFS without any need to format .. you will not loose anything ..

To convert an existing FAT or FAT32 volume to NTFS, follow these steps:

1.Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Command Prompt.

2.At the command prompt, type the following, where drive letter is the drive that you want to convert: convert drive letter: /fs:ntfs


For example, type the following command to convert drive E to NTFS: convert e: /fs:ntfs
