    Help someone:

    I am a new help desk tech who knows very little about things especially smart drives. I bought a u3 smart drive and I started installing stuff from my laptop's "my documents". I then realized it copied far more than I wanted - forgot all the subfolders I had inside. So I started deleting like a frenzy and then realized too late I had just deleted the whole systems folder on the drive that was factory installed. I don't know what all was in that folder but I want it back - I can't fix it because nothings there anymore. How do I get new system files on it. Are they different than regular HDD sys files? Any help would be so much appreciated!

    Look here: http://www.u3.com/support/faq.aspx#U3 Launchpad5

    If it's a SanDisk U3 drive, then you can directly download the software from the link on that page, if it's not SanDisk, then you have to follow the instructions listed there.
