Fortunately for users, it seem s that Kingston is willing to resolve this issue, and is urging customers with affected drives to contact tech support to arrange for a factory update of your device (though it’d be a very good idea to make a copy of the data on the thumbdrive,) Will this affect your confidence in Kingston products in the future?
