pen drive is dead

i have a pen drive with important data. i forgot it connected for a night and now it does not function anymore. The light does not turn on and the pc does not see it anymore. When i connect it nothing happens. Is there a way to repair it? it should be an electric error more than a memory one. it's usb 2.0 like this

Try to completely shut down the computer, replace a USB port and restart the computer. Otherwise, it looks as if your usint just passed away from this world.

One other possibility is to use recovery software suitable to the Flash memory stick:

Try to use it.

you can also delete all USB entries from the root in device manager, and reboot. it will then reinstall the drivers, and maybe it will see your drive again. Try on all ports .

i never heard anything about that, but you can always try. If it is new, you can return it under warranty and get a new one .
