Hi. My name is Luke, and this is how to clean a flash drive. If you want to clean or get data off of a flash drive there's a few different ways to do it. First of all you can start by just deleting the information from the flash drive. Here's how you do it. Click on the start button, go to computer, look for the flash drive in question, double-click on it to enter and then select the file or program or folder that you want to delete. You can then either hit the delete key on the keyboard or right click and delete. Another option to clean the flash drive in general is to format it. However when you format a flash drive you're going to lose all the data on it. What you're going to do is go to the start bar, computer, find the drive in question, right click and hit format. Here you can specify the file system, the size and whether or not you want to use the quick format option.
