I've run into a slight problem with PowerPoint 2011. I was trying to save a rather large PowerPoint to my USB flash drive, and it told me it ran into an error and I should save my presentation. I checked the directory on my flash drive that I was trying to save to, and this is part of what I found (there were more files and folders than this):
The biggest problem is that these files won't delete. If I try to delete a folder, it does nothing. If I try to delete a file, it either tells me it can no longer find the file, or the file name is either not valid or too long.
How do I delete these files and folders?
Thanks in advance!
EDIT: I should add that PowerPoint is still working like normal, and I was able to save the presentation successfully right after this error.
Since these files are on your flash drive, copy off all of the important data from your flash drive. and then format it.

Buddy this happend to my psp memory card you are not going to like my answer but anyway here it goes.
Your pen drive is a fake; therefore the computer is not able to support it and it tends to create unwanted unusable data that is not delete-able. Memory motherboard and such accords are unreliable when it comes from a small dealer.
If you notice that what you are getting ( in these material ) cheap then you have to assume there is something wrong with it
Please buy an original pen drive thank you.
