The ".Ink" you refer to is really ".lnk" (the first character of the extension is a lower-case "L," as in link, not an "I"). Shortcuts use "lnk" as their file extension.

This kind of thing can happen if you install software from a networked drive and then later detach from that network, which is a common situation if you use a laptop computer that you disconnect from your office network and take home. To find the shortcut, follow these steps: Open Windows Explorer and press Ctrl-F (hold down the control key and press F) to bring up the Find dialog. Select "Local Hard Drives" in the Look in dropdown, and enter ".lnk" (or whatever the error message reported for the name of the bad shortcut) in the Named field. When you click the Find Now button, Windows will search your hard drives for the shortcut and display what it found.

SOURCE: Unable to access hard drive files after it fell.

Good Day, I am not used to endorsing companies or products, but for your problem I did a little research and found that http://www.dtidata.com/ is a good company of choice for data recovery, On their site, they advertise that they are used by some known companies for data recovery needs.
Also, you may try to recover files by yourself, by using programs for such tasks, Hirens Boot Cd for example has many recovery tools http://www.hiren.info/downloads/data-recovery/hard-drive/1.
Hope this helps.
Thank you for using Fixya

My flashdrive wont open and says that it needs to be reformatted ?!?


Hello,

exactly the same thing has happened to me before, but I was able to solve the problem using Avira Anti-virus.

Here is what you have to do to get your flash drive working again;

Install Avira Anti virus on on your computer. If you don't have Avira anti-virus software, go to www.avira.com, on the Avira home page, you will see Free download. Click on the free download. Allow the software download on your computer. Go to the location where the software was download and click on the software to have it installed on your computer.

After the Avira nti-virus has been successfully or completely installed on your computer, insert the flash drive into the USB port of your computer.

The moment the flash drive is inserted, the Anti virus will pop out with a dialogue box alerting you about virus detected on the flash drive.

Select 'Delete...", and the box might pop out over and over. Just keep selecting delete until the whole virus is deleted from the flash drive and your flash drive will be okay.

You can format the flash drive thereafter or right click on the flash drive from 'My computer' and scan the drive with Avira anti virus.

This should fix the problem you are facing presently. But if it does not solve the problem, please let me know so that I can give the next step to taking.

Your sincerely.

I have inserted the Cruzer Micro 2GB flash disk, its detected as unknown device i've gone to device manager tried checked driver details it says no drivers i've tried reinstalling the U3 launchpad but it...


I would try a different computer first if that does not work it may be the drive is bad and would need replacement. For the most part memory has a good warranty so you may be able to have it swapped by contacting the manufacturer.

Cannot copy to flash drive anymore


Your pen drive might be having some kind of virus that is creating this problem. Get USB Disk security from http://www.zbshareware.com/

I'm using it since many months and whenever there's some kind of virus on my pen drive, and I insert it in my PC, this USB disk security detects it and allows me to remove it. Nice littly proggy.

HTH,

have you ever tried of inserting it to other computers?

If it is still not detected, one way or another, it could be your flash drive is already not working.
Maybe the last time you have defragmented it causes the drive to be destroyed for some reasons such as computer hardware problem.

If it is now detected, check if you can still recover the data. Your last option will be to format your drive so you can start new. Im sorry but in my experience you cannot anymore recover the data if it is already gone.
