Trouble writing to usb

Question.

I have my openbox tint2 udevil spacefm desktop looking and working great.

Except it seems like it doesn't want to write to my usb thumb drives.

Copy paste no errors, can even leave the folder and return and files are listed

But remove the drive and reinsert and the file were never written

Am I missing something?

Thanks

Did you unmount the drive before you pulled it out?  Sometimes writes are left pending, and doing an unmount will finishing any pending tasks.

I always do a sync before unmount, to more safety.
