Generic USB Driver Windows 7

If you are having issues with finding a driver for a USB Drive, here's a trick.

Go to C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository\usbstor.inf_

and get the latest directory, copy the contents to 

C:\Windows\Inf

Reinsert your USB stick, it should detect it now and install it.
