Linux USB Error?

It seems like ever since I switched to the Linux version my Windows 10 desktop reports USB drive errors whenever I export to USB from J-Field. I get a "problems with this drive" message and a recommendation to scan and repair the drive. Every time I click OK to repair, and every time Windows reports that no problems were found. Thoughts?

I have one computer with win7 and 1 with win10, I get the message with both of them, I just click don't fix and have not run into any issues. I was told something along the lines of Windows just doesn't exactly appreciate the the way Linux creates files. They are different operating systems, and windows knows those files were not created on windows.

Later we will add to JField possibility to unmount USB stick manually. It should help to fix the issue. The unmount icon could be added to the status bar of the Home screen for example.

Same here Jim, I tried to fix the drive and there is nothing to fix. I wince a little when I just remove a usb drive from the L.S. because I am used to ejecting them on my computer.
I like the idea of the unmounting icon.

I experience the identical issue w/ a 64GB SanDisk. Recommendation to scan and repair: then a message that nothing's wrong. Let's implement that "Eject Dongle" option asap!
