Hello All,

I am rather beginner level user.
My USB drive crashed (something wrong in data IMHO) and there were defined my user data files - so now:
- system is not working correctly because can't read/write userdata on USB
- I can't format USB because there is userdata define
- I can't change userdata definition because I have error that it impossible to move userdata from USB to root

What can I do now to fix this situation?

Thanks in advance for help!

Hi,
I solved this. The most important was changing mounting type from USID (or something) to dev/sd (or something) - then I replaced USB drive for working one, I moved data back to root and everything is working now. Old pendrive is working after clearing.
Sorry for confusion. Maybe it will be useful in the future for somebody.
