Re: Open Thunar to root broken

Re: Any Experience with PNY Flashdrive?

I have a 32Gb usb 3 PNY.
It would not work as live usb but did sort of if using as fat32. Was going to chuck it but for some reason I formatted it (full) on a windows pc. Since then it works 100% !!!! Had it for about 2 years now.
Can create live usb etc. without any issues.
