Can't access folder on USB stick

I recently installed TomatoUSB (Shibby version 126) on my Nighthawk R7000 and everything seems to be working good.

I would like to use the IP Traffic Monitoring feature to store daily IP traffic logs on a SanDisk USB stick plugged into my Nighthawk.  However, I can't seem to access the custom folder I created (called "iptraffic") on the USB stick for storing these logs.  I keep getting the error message "Windows can not access \\UKNOWN\iptraffic" (see screenshot below) when I double-click on the folder in Windows Explorer.  I've rebooted the router several times but still no luck accessing this folder.

How do I get access to this custom shared folder?  I am able to access the "jffs" and "sda1" folders that were automatically created when I inserted my USB stick.

Here are some screenshots from Tomato GUI and Windows Explorer:

Log in on the command line to make it easier to see what's going on. Perhaps you don't have the right permissions. Also, plug the USB stick into a working computer to make sure it is working. I recently had a stick go bad while plugged into a WNR3500Lv2. I could read it, but not write to it. As it turns out I couldn't anywhere else either and the stick had gone into lock mode because it was damaged.
