Flash drive became readonly (Sandisk)

Recommended Posts

All of a sudden my flash drive was not writeable any longer.  Searching for that error revealed that this most likely because of bad sectors and Sandisk making their drives readonly in that case.  So I want to switch to a new drive but of course I don't have a flash backup.  Now I wonder if I can just copy the files in Windows to the new one or if I need additional steps.
