[Solved] USB Flash Drive

Thank you both Diapason and AndyMH for the important
comments. I am archiving this thread. :<)

Diapason, I monkeyed with it before and changed the permission for all others not to be able to write but not for me.

Something not quite right there. From what you say everything is in the right place and it should just work as I said. The copy and paste should be just as you are used to (CTRL+C and CTRL+V) or via the right click menu options. Drag and drop is just that. Put your mouse pointer over the file or fo...
