I think that it is a "self-defence" operation. The memory-chips inside do have a finite life -- number of times that each "cell" can be re-recorded.  So, it is notifying you that it is (at least partially) "worn-out", and is cannot record anything.

 

Copy all the files from it, onto your computer, and then from your computer onto a brand-new pen-drive.

 

Then, take a hammer to the old drive -- to destroy any personal data that cannot otherwise be erased/deleted.
