When you want to create backups of important files or copy data to another device, external storage devices like USB sticks continue to be the best solution. But what if some files are only stored on the data medium and the USB drive is not recognized? We point out the most common causes for a “USB device not recognized” message and present the best solutions for Windows and Mac.
Windows update errors can often be especially tricky. For instance, if the 0x8024200d error occurs while installing a new patch, even a restart won’t usually help.

Windows handles a number of processes in the background that users hardly notice. The system often relies on hidden files that are protected against unauthorized access. One of these files is pagefile.sys, which serves to lighten the load on the working memory. Can this file be deleted? And what would the consequences be for a computer’s system stability?
File systems like NTFS or FAT don’t just play a key role in computers. Portable storage media like USB sticks also depend on these technologies for organizing data, in order to store and process files.
