From my Ventura iMac I drug a folder of folders containing several thousand jpgs and psd files onto a SXINDE 1TB flash drive. It took awhile. So then I drug a jpg to my AP2024 app icon, Photoshop gives me the below message. All of the files on the flash drive get the same message. Is there a way to correct what is happening or is a flash drive a waste of money?
After fooling w the flash drive and others, I solved my issues. Reformated the APSF format to macOS Extended Journaled. Realized that what made the process so slow was attempting to open picts from the drive. Stopped that. All the image files open perfectly now.
