Scan/Repair disk Error when I plug in

I've been having some real issues with my portable apps. Every other time I put the USB in it says that my drive has errors on it. I've tried reinstalling it, uninstalling it, and now reformatting then installing.

It might just be a crappy flash drive but I'm bummed anyway. Anyone else having similar problems?

I have often seen that error

I have often seen that error message.
I know there is nothing wrong with the drive and my computer.
I just ignore the error message. It works fine anyway.

I see that error is when I do not exit the platform before removing the usb from drive. That is a Windows base error, relevant to the old DOS chkdsk command. I would say run the check and make sure that before you remove the drive to close all apps then the platform

That's entirely possible.

if it is my own fault it does seem to affect some of my portable apps. Primarily Thunderbird.

Some apps are more susceptible then others. Things that write often - email (as you read/unread and it indexes messages and compacts mailboxes) and browsers (as they record history, cache certain things, keep track of tabs open/closed, etc) are the most vulnerable to unsafe ejects.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Have you tried just manually

Have you tried just manually scanning the drive for errors and fixing them when they're detected?

Scan/Repair disk error when drive is plugged in

Although I use the eject button on the Portable Apps menu, when I plug in the drive on the next time, I get a message stating that the disk has a problem and needs to be fixed. I use the same process everytime although it seems to happen more frequently on a Sandisk 64Gb drive than on other drives I use. Should I use the Windows eject process rather than the PortableApps process?
