Hi, recently bought my 1st USB Flash Drive, I put some photos on it and all was working perfectly. It has been sitting safe and sound in my drawer since then (has not been dropped or got wet) but just now when I plugged it in there was nothing on it! What the hell has happened?

No storage medium is 100% safe, flash memory included. Test it out again, and if it's duff, get a refund. I've never had one die on me, but I've been lucky - plenty haven't.

It's why we make two or more backups of critical stuff.
