Mostly I see this when the drive is full or the permissions on the drive are incorrect. This is an old subject so I won't dive into permissions today.
I cannot permanently change the "view" ("tile," "icon," etc.) within any folder in my stick drive. I can change the view temporarily while I'm in the folder, but when I move up a folder, and then back down into it, my choice is reverted. This occurs _only_ in the stick drive folders. One is stuck on "tile" view; the other (which I just created) is stuck on "icon" view (which I never selected; it just suddenly appeared that way right after I created and filled it, then moved up a folder and then back down into it).
Does anyone have any idea what in the world might be causing this?
