Sandisk files

Postby jonbar.1 » Wed Apr 21, 2021 2:48 pm

I use a Sandisk USB stick to hold video files.I have noticed that, when I open the drive on the computer; apart from the list of video files, there are 3 extra files,which I don't recognise:
"SanDiskSecureAccessV3_01-win.exe"
"ses-usb-installer.log"
"catalog.xml"
Being an excessively tidy chap,I would love to simply delete them.However I don't want to regret it :think:
Can anyone tell me what they are?
Can I safely bin them?
Thankyou.

You can delete these file if you don't want to Password protect your Date on the Sandisk.
UNIX is basically a simple operating system, but you have to be a genius to understand the simplicity.

Hi jonbar.1,

Files to store SecureAccess should you use this program. If you Format the drive they will not be there and the drive will still work.
