    Often when I plug in my usb stick, Win 10 asks me to format the stick before I can use it. Of course I didn't do that. I just re-insert the stick and it works fine. I think it has something to do with the USB receptacle being a bit loose.

    When I unplug it and plug it back in, the error message keeps coming up.I have tried it on another laptop and it does not do it.

    Are you using the Safely Remove function or just unplugging it?
    And/or did you check the box to automatically fix problems when it prompts you to check for errors?

    Many of the antivirus packages are, by default, set to automatically scan USB drives and, if they are in active use, yanking them out will leave the dirty bit set.

    I use the safely remove just a habit,auto fix is checked. I did disble Bitdefender Free and it does not do it, so re enabled it I waited a while after I used it and it is fine it must have something to do With Bitdefender just a matter now of finding out how long I have to wait. (thanx everyone)

    There ought to be an option in BitDefender to stop current scan and/or disable the automatic scanning of USB devices.
