Hi rodgafli,
first I would try to get my files back, so I would suggest you to try one of the products behind the following links: http://www.pc-inspector.de/file_recovery/welcome.htm http://www.recover4all.com/ http://www.partition-recovery.com/ If you don't want to try that (because no worthful data has been lost) you should reinstall the U3-Launchpad from Sandisk: http://www.sandisk.com/DriverDownload/driverList.asp After that you can reinstall the U3-software by using the U3-Launchpad.

These days PC viruses have become very common therefore, there are several instances when after inserting your flash drive in an infected PC, you end up not seeing your files anymore. It can also take place after scanning your flash drive with certain anti-virus programs. This normally happens a lot with folders. Many people after showing hidden files, if they still don't see them, think that they are gone. No they are not. I have solved a lot of such problems for people. Here's what to do:

Download 'WinRAR' software for free on the internet. An example is http://www.rarlab.com/rar/wrar390.exe
1. Now double click and follow the instructions to install.
2. Be sure that you have inserted the affected flash drive in usb port.
3. Click the start button and go to programs. And then to WinRAR.
4. When WinRAR opens, use the drop down arrow to select your flash drive.
5. After selecting it, you will see that all your 'missing' folders and files are showing (except the files that were removed because they were infected by viruses).
6. Now you cannot right-click and copy so you would have to use control+c to copy.
7. Create a folder on a different drive that you would copy the files that you need into.
8. Now, in the WinRAR, you can open any folder that you need by highlighting all or a selected number of files and use control+c to copy and then paste them in your created folder ( by either right-clicking and selecting paste or using control+v).

I recommend that you recreate the folders that you have on the flash drive using the same folder names and then copy only files into them. This is because, files always show when copied but folders do not always show when copied. You can then wipe your flash drive and recopy the retrieved files/folders into it. That is all. You have successfully recovered your files.

Hope this was helpful. All the best.

How to repair : smart failure predicted on Hard Disc 0 : WDC WD3200BEVT-22ACT0-PM on Packard bell laptop


You have the S.M.A.R.T. virus infestation. There is nothing wrong with your hard drive.

You can try to remove the infestation yourself by following the steps below or as I recommend to most everyone who gets this particular virus. Bring it to a pc shop that specializes in virus removal for a set price. I strongly recommend bringing it to a expert because this is a very tough infestation to remove. If you try and remove it yourself you are very unlikely to remove all of the virus infestation and might not be able to recover any missing program Icons that have already disappeared.

If you feel lucky then here you go:

Start your PC and press F8 several times until the boot menu comes up. Then select "Safe Mode with Networking". Now get some or ALL of the FREE programs below.

Download, Install and Run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware:

When Installing choose the non-pro version.

How to boot my laptop into usb drive


You have not specified your operating system. However I will explain how to do it with windows 7. First you have to create a bootable flash drive. Do it as follows
Format USB flash drive to NTFS format(For Win XP only. Vista users can directly format the USB drive to NTFS format) In your Windows, go to Control panel -> system -> hardware -> Device manager.
Under the disk drives section, right click on the USB storage drive and select Properties.
device-properties.pngGo to the Policies tab, select optimize for performance. Click OK.
device-policy.pngOpen your Windows Explorer, you should see the USB storage drive in the inventory. Right click and select Format. Select NTFS from the drop down bar. Click Start.
format-ntfs.pngFor Windows XP,
Download MBRWizard. Extract the zipped files to your desktop.
Open a command prompt (Start -> Program -> Accessories -> Command Prompt).

cd Desktop/MBRWiz2.0/
MBRWiz /list
Record the USB flash drive disk number
mbrwiz-list.pngMake the USB drive active.

mbrwiz /disk=X /active=1
For Windows Vista,
On the Start menu, navigate to the command prompt entry. Right-click and select Run as administrator.
vista-command-prompt.pngType

diskpart
list disk
Record the disk number of your USB flash drive.
vista-diskpart.pngSelect the USB disk.

select disk X (X is the drive number of the USB flash drive)
List the current partition. Record the partition number.

list partition
Select the current partition and make it active.

select partition Y (Y is the partition number of the USB flash drive)
active
list-partition-vista.png Creating bootable USB flash driveDownload Windows 7 iso (32-bit) file to your desktop (The download link is no longer valid).
Download and install WinRAR.
Right-click on the Windows 7 iso file and select Extract files. Extract the files to a folder (you can name the folder any name you want, but for illustration purpose, I name it win-7) in your desktop.
extract-win-7.pngIn your command prompt, cd to the windows 7 folder.

cd Desktop/win-7 (Change the destination to the folder that you have extracted)
cd boot
bootsect /nt60 X: (X is the drive latter of your USB drive )
bootsect-success.pngNow, copy all the files from the Windows 7 folder to the USB flash drive.
Reboot the computer. Remember to change the first boot device to your USB drive in the BIOS.
You should be able to install Windows 7 from your USB flash drive now.
