I copied my data to a thumb drive. I am trying to transfer it to the new computer but the message I got was "unknown file type"

Can you help with this?

    just a user,

    What is the extension of your thumb drive copy? I've noticed on some MD exports, the extension is not added to the file and you have to add manually.
