    I couldn't find the perfect forum for this question so here goes. If you can suggest a more appropriate forum please let me know.

    I would like to copy new material to existing flash drives that are no longer relevant. How do I delete material on them so that I can start fresh?

    Thanks in advance.

    Go into windows explorer (windows logo + E if your on windows), right click the flash drive and select format. This will remove everything on the drive.
