I have a small thumb drive and plugged it in after installing office 2007 and tried to save a document it said it had to be set up for use. I hit OK and it took about 45 seconds and completed. Now all my data is gone on the drive. How can I recover that data? Is it possible?

Hi there, have you tried any of the many Thumb Drive data recovery software programs out there on the web?

Here's some links to a few - just make sure to not write/save anything else onto the Thumb Drive until you have run these programs.
