usb pen drive lost data, how can i recover it?
Ok, after putting a usb drive though some real world everyday abuse, i hit a snag... the drive lost all its data and claims its not formatted. It offers to format, but at 16mb instead of 2gb.
It appears i puled the drive before it was done beeing used. ^_^ wee! fun.
So, this is where it gets interesting... I need to recover some data off that drive (photographic evidence compressed in two zip archives.)
I plug the drive in and use a program called ontrack easy recovery pro... but when I plug my usb pen drive in, it does not see the drive/device at all in the program.
Windows keeps offering to format. I dont really want to dot that yet...
I was wondering if anyone else had similar issues with a pen drive and how did they solve it?
