USB flash drive - partition not recognized
Posted on 2009-04-03
I have an 8Gb Corsair Voyager thumb drive, worked fine for about a year, not a glitch.
One day, out of the blue, unreadable.
Device manager recognizes it as Mass Storage Device / Generic Volume
But Disk Management snap-in says "Disk 1, removable, unreadable".
And in My Computer it shows up as "Removable Disk". When I double-click, it says "please insert disk into drive E:".
So far PC Inspector Smart Recovery, Easy Recovery Pro, Recuva, don't seem to be working. OnTrack Data Recovery Pro, it seems, doesn't do flash drives at all.
I don't really care about the drive - but the data on it was not backed up. That WAS the backup. What are my chances and options to try data recovery?
