Anyone know why a particular flash-drive would reconfigure itself to be
read only..?  This F-drive has done this three times, forcing me to
format it, and reload the hd backup.. and another has done it once..  I
run with ten flash-drives in maintaining a perpetual backup by the

I reload the hd backup flash yesterday, and now when I click up
properties, I get "permissions could not be determined"..?  This
troublesome flash is a "DANE-ELEC" 8-gig"..  I can't trust this
crap-thing..  What's the best low priced flash on the market..?
