Where did the data on the flash drive originally come from and has the original source been deleted??

I'm assuming it was from one of your IDevices as you posted in the All iOS forum but I don't know how you got it there.

Also was your iTunes library composed mainly of music from Apple's iTunes store?? If so, I understood that such music was recoverable direct from Apple, but I don't know how as I have never purchased any music from their iTunes Store.

I still have all of the songs on my iPhone. It would be nice if that could be considered a "backup" when the secondary site, a flash drive, goes south. But alas, it is not so easy to transfer songs, with a nice drag and drop, from the iPhone onto another device. But the beauty of having ones phone "mirror" your computer content is that there is always another copy. I just have to make sure I now do a drag and drop of my flash drive content onto a backup device.
Most of the songs were ripped from cds with only a comparative handful from iTunes.

I wonder if you subscribed to iTunes match if it would upload from the phone. I use that for my music, costs about $25 for the year and puts all my music in the cloud, even music that is not on iTunes. I have some lectures and things that were personally recorded and they are all stored with iTunes Match.

My advice to you would be too run, don't walk, and download and use the iMazing.app (normally $44.99usd, now $7) that's included in the current bundle available here:
https://bundlehunt.com/?ap_id=macappware

iMazing.app is a Mac iOS device backup and transfer application and more!!! Well worth even its regular price!!

More info and comments here:

PS: There may be some other good Apps in that bundle that you could use as well, and at a bargain price.

Thanks for your feedback.
Have you tried it with different USB ports and different devices (if you have any)?

I find USB ports are not that reliable after many years of use - sometimes I have to insert the flash drive several times or into different ports to get it to mount.
