If it says to contact technical support its probably a flash drive or computer problem.

It might. I've also occasionally been successful after getting that message by trying a different manner of opening. For example, if I tried to open it by clicking on it in Windows Explorer and got the message, if I'd right-click on it and choose "Open" from the drop-down it might work. Or try opening it from within SW by going to File > Open.
Yes I found that sometimes a quirky little trick like this will work! You could aslo try sending to a zip file, placing on desktop and then unzipping. It can be a weird thing that will work for you!
I've often found that when a client sends me a .step file, zipped or unzipped, I have to drag it out of my email program and put it on the desktop before I can open it.
I have seen this message when there is not enough free space (should be double the file size).
Try removing other stuff or copy to a different location with more free space.
The first thing that I would do would be to transfer the file from the flash drive to the hard drive on the computer.
I never open or work on SOLIDWORKS files from a flash drive - just a bad idea.
The file might be corrupted. Did you pull the flash drive out of the computer while editing its files on SW?
DONT TELL ME HE DIDNT EJECT BEFORE PULLING OUT!
Oh, boy !!!! what can I say ???
Yes i ejected before pulling it out

Seriously, I never open SW files from a flashdrive, but sometimes I open other programs such as Visual studio from a flashdrive and pull it out at lunch time (since I have my falshdrive on my key chain) while editing a file on it.
Not all the time, but once a while, the file got corrupted or when I plug the flashdrive back and keep working then lose all the work
Pulling out before you are finished has been proven to not be effective...
