Verbatim 1GB flash drive data recovery

I've got a verbatim flash drive. I plugged it in to my laptop and the laptop got pushed up against the wall and bent the flash drive. I can't retrieve any data that I've saved on it. Is there a way to recover the data?

Sounds like you broke something ;)

If your computer does not recognize anything when you plug it into the computer, your problem is most likely a broken contact inside the usb drive.

You should attempt to open the drive, and see if one of the four contacts on the inside of hte usb key are no longer making their way to the circuit board, and try to reconnect it.

IF you can push the connectors down with your fingers and make contact temporarily, and the computer recognizes it, try to just hold it there while you copy all your data off. Then throw away the flash drive.

How can I retrieve my information from my verbatim hard drive 320gb? It isn't opening.


Take the drive out the caddy and plug it into a computer using a SATA to USB cable. If the drive doesn't spin up then it's a dead drive and you'll need to use a data recovery company

My USB flash drive is not recognizable in any computer. It will give me a couple of codes..... Currently, this hardware device is not connected to the computer. (Code 45) or Windows has stopped this


Have you formatted this usb flash drive?
If you still want to get back all stored file, you'd better never format this drive, for the formatting process may erase everything on this drive. So, I hope you've not formatted it yet.
Here are some ways for you to save back your inner data and this hard drive:
1). Do not format this drive till you've saved all your stored data back.
2). Do not add any new file on this drive in case that anything new would rewrite your original data.
3). If you really know a little about data recovery things, you can directly apply some highly-recommended data recovery freeware online, such as Disk Drill https://www.cleverfiles.com/usb-flash-drive-recovery.html
4). Do not save the restored data on the same drive in case of data recovery failure.
5). Do not forget to format this drive after the data recovery process so that you can check whether this "not formatted error" problem could be resolved.
Best wishes!

I dropped 500gb verbatim external drive. It wants me to format the drive. How can i get the data back before i format it? Please help Thank you


Because the first few records stored on the disk-drive have been corrupted (or are physically unreadable), you get the "please format" message. Hopefully, the other 99.9 percent of the data-blocks stored on the disk-drive are OK.

Search online for 'data recovery' software -- it reads through the disk-drive, block-by-block, trying to merge blocks of data back into files that can be copied onto your 'C:' drive.

Hi.. i hav a problem with Verbatim 8 GB usb drive,


they have lifetime warranty but not for the data. this is a damaged boot sector programming on the flash drive. It can only be recovered via a Level 3 data recovery company like ADR or Kroll. I used ADR.

Verbatim external harddisk drive 500 gb when i


Ouch!
If the installation disk that came with the drive has any sort of troubleshooting or recovery tool, try that first. If not, try the trial version of System Mechanic from Iolo. It's a really good piece of software that could help recover the data if possible.

As a last resort, the Verbatim website suggests Norton Disk Doctor or Data Rescue X. They may have free trials. You'll have to check their website.

Beyond this, you're probably looking at a professional data recovery company. That can be expensive!

Good luck! Remember to rate the solutions!

My verbatim 4GB flash drive broke. The metal


If the metal piece just came out of the plastic casing, you may try reconnecting it to the computer and see if it would be detected by the computer. If it's detected, back up all the files.

But if the metal piece broke off, sorry but there's no way to fix it.

Now, you may look for a Data Recovery Center near you. The Data Recovery Centers are computer shops or stores that offers data restoration, back up or retrieval.

Hope these helps and have a great day!

In order to delete your privacy zone, you have to get the application once more. To get the software click here http://verbatim.com/support/support.cfm?open=Downloads ...ok so you will have to format your flash drive with the application, removing the privacy zone if you want, this will obiously DELETE ALL DATA ON THE DRIVE after the format has completed, you can then remove the application from you flash drive, if you still remember the privacy zone password, then all you have to do is just type it and you have acess to the privacy zone... anyone who needs assistance can contact me to semirandomjr@yahoo.com if you are confused, email me and i can also try to clear it up for you.
