After 4 + years of wedded bliss, totally out of the blue, SmugMug informed me that everything had to go. Approximately 30,000 files/photos meticulously organized at the best site I've ever found.....gone!

I told them a great deal of those were my personal scans from magazines I'd purchased over the years. No go. I can't tell you how much this pissed me off. The layout of the site is head & shoulders better than anyone I've tried before. Flickr Premium- Photo Bucket Premium, etc,

I have a sneaking suspicion that even though I pay 70$ + per year for unlimited storage, I was using too much, & they just wanted to get rid of me. The reason I suspect this, is because earlier this year, I found a site that allows me to make GIF's from videos in full screen resolution, & because of that, they're extremely large. Some of them are close to 500 MB's.

Another reason I suspect this is because from the very start, my entire library was kept 'private' Only SmugMug administrators could see any of my content, & I never tried to sell any of the photos which is an option there.

But that's a whole other story.
Bottom line is I'm screwed. I paid for a year in advance on February 2, & none of it is refundable if you end your contract (for any reason) early. Venting complete.

I have everything backed up on a flash drive, but I'm running into a problem.
When/if I find a suitable replacement for SmugMug, rather than transfer everything from the USB drive back to my Mac before uploading, I'd prefer to transfer them to a web host directly from the USB.

I already had an account set up at Google photo, & even though I know that isn't the long-term answer to my needs, last night I tried to transfer files.

The problem is that the file/folder I need to click is shown, but not clickable.
I'm guessing that even though the drive is already open on the desktop, because it's password-protected, it won't allow a transfer ?

Drag & drop didn't work either.
I tried to see if I could switch it to a non-password-protected, but if there's a way to do that, I wasn't able to figure it out. It a SanDisk drive if that matters.

Would transferring everything to another flash drive that isn't password-protected solve the problem ?

I'm thinking it might not allow that either ?

Just a guess, but did you give the flash drive Admin Rights/Take Ownership..??

Not that I'm aware of ?
The only thing I know for sure, is that it's password-protected.

It's a Windows 10 thing...open the thumb drive & click on a folder & choose "Take The Ownership Of The Folder".

Also, depending on the age of the thumb drive...older ones have a switch on it to lock files down...so they can't be deleted or copied.

I have an iMac: (New November 2018)

32 GB Sandisk Cruzer Glide Flash Drive bought around the same time. As far as I can tell, it doesn't have a switch to 'lock it down' just a slide to open it.

Though it will not take much longer, this will be more tedious, and require more monitoring.

Create a desktop folder, labled "Transfer" or something. Copy your files from the SanDisc to the folder, about 1 GB or 500 MB or whatever size chunks are convenient for you. Then upload them to the cloud from there. When that upload is finished, delete the files and copy another batch, then upload them. Rinse and repeat until the entire USB stick is uploaded.

Of course, if you have the HDD space, just copy all to your HDD, then upload.

To be honest, I haven't tried that yet. Maybe tomorrow or Tuesday.
I'll report after that.
