    This drive corrupted on both Windows and Mac

    This drive wasted two hours of my time, and corrupted itself repeatedly on both Windows and Mac. I started out just trying to copy some photos onto it for a friend on Mac. It disconnected after two files were copied. I tried again with a whole bunch of methods like restarting or waiting. The drive even ejected itself while I was waiting! It became increasingly corrupted, even changing its name and the files on it to gibberish. I thought: maybe it's just a Mac issue. No! The flash drive behaved even worse on Windows. It was so serious that Windows 10 could not even repair the disk. After a long period of freezing, I was finally able to reformat the drive on Windows 10. After trying again to copy some files to it, the entire corruption process started again. This flash drive is not reliable at all. I'm taking it back for a refund, not an exchange.

    I bought a 64gb drive & it's possibly the most horrible one in the pile. (I have 10-20 thumb drives laying around.) I run several computers, both PC and Mac & it's still easier to transfer files via thumb drive. The PNY takes forever to format, is slower than any of my old USB2 drives and was unreadable on two occasions. If I were closer to the store I would have returned it. (The kid told me, don't rely on PNY. OTOH, I have a 10+ year old, aluminum 4gb on my key chain that is still going strong. (Edit away. It's refreshing to tell the truth.)

    Okay, I'll start by saying that I have no problem with the drive itself. It's worked great - quick and efficient. However, today I needed to check and see how much space was left on it... and when I checked the Properties, it said it had a 31.9GB (aka 32GB) capacity. WHAT IN THE WORLD?! I bought a 64GB flash drive, and it SAYS 64GB on the drive itself, yet it has a 32GB capacity? Not okay. At all. I even formatted it, thinking that maybe it somehow created a partition - nothing. Still got a 32GB capacity. Maybe I'm missing something obvious? I don't know. It's still a good drive, but it isn't at all what it was represented to be. Hence the 1 star review.

    USB Drive Died Shortly After Purchase

    I can't recommend the PNY USB drive to anyone. After a week or two of semi-regular use, I attempted to move files from one location to another (as is typical). Upon use in the second computer, file transfer became incredibly slow. Further investigation: the drive had been corrupted. Even worse? I could no longer reformat the drive. The whole thing was dead. Thankfully I bought the drive while on sale... but it died after the Best Buy return period had expired. A shame to (effectively) throw away money.

    Unreliable

    Died after a couple months of use. Don't trust your important data to this device. It just started ejecting improperly on its own and corrupting data. I use flash drives on a daily basis and replace them annually. I thought this was going to be a good deal for 64GB of data for the price, but the data loss is much higher a price to pay. I won't do that again!

    I had this thumb drive for about 3 weeks, it stopped reading on all my PC's. Once plugged in, it would pop up and then disappear. When it did work, the USB 3.0 speeds weren't impressive by any means. Sure it was faster than 2.0 speeds, but nothing too impressive over other 3.0 drives I've used before. I'll have to do an RMA on this one to get it replaced, hopefully the replacement works a lot longer than this one did.

    It's appalling that this drive does not have a light indicator. In this day and age, where everything is about convenience and ergonomics, this product's lack of a simple thing like light indicator is simply unacceptable. Why would they even make something like this?!!!

    Transferred vacation pictures to this flash drive, checked to be sure they transferred, then deleted them from my camera card. A few days later, was going to show pictures to a friend. When I brought them up on the computer, all my pictures were nothing but colored boxes with lines across them. Lost pictures from 2 trips.Will never buy PNY again.

    Can NOT Be Partitioned

    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    The default partitioning on this drive has a single FAT32 partition which can not be changed. PNY has confirmed this on their FAQ page: "Can I partition my Attaché? No, PNY does not currently support partitioning of the Attaché USB drive."

    I haven’t been able to sync pictures from my iPad to the flash drive as was my purpose for its purchase. So disappointed. This review isn’t to sway anyone from purchasing this device, just sharing my experience.

    This write speed is that of a 2.0. I've had this for about a month and I've had to re-format at. This is the only one if all the years I've had flash drives that failed like this on me. and During a DJ gig.

    This is my 2nd one. The first one I bought, the speed was fine for a 3.0. But, this one here is no faster than 2.0. I tried 3 different 3.0 ports. Speed is still slow. I'm disappointed with this one.

    Looked like a great deal. Fast at 3.0, plenty of storage for a flash drive at 64GB, got for a great price on sale. Corrupted after a few months, and I lost all my files!!! I would NOT ever recommend!!!

    Most of the time fails, so it is not reliable.

    Second PNY Flash drive that fails to connect most of the times. Gave to a family member to use as a backup. I did not had this bad experience with other PNY Flash drives of less capacity before.

    This is a USB3.0 drive that response like a 1.0. It starts and stops. I still can't get believe it. I must have gotten a lemon. I gave a one star because this company usually has great drives.
