Retrieving information on a reformatted USB drive

Hello,

I have a 1gb flash drive (Staples). After recently purchasing a laptop with Windows Vista, I was trying to use my flash drive. However, in attempting to install the software, it reformatted my flash drive. Is there anyway to retrieve the information that was on there?

Thank you
Tanya

Unfortunately when its been formatted all the data stored gets wiped off.
You could try searching on the net for data retrieval programs and see if any of them can help you. Something like this

Good Luck

HP windows 8 does not recognize simpleteck hard drive


I purchased a SimpleTech SimpleDrive Pininfarina 500GB External USB 2.0 Hard Drive - Onyx for my Vista machine and all was well. Then I purchased a Windows 7 machine. It would not recognize the devise. I contacted SimpleTech only to be told my model cannot be used on machines newer that the Vista. Recently I purchased a Windows 8.1, did a little research, plugged the SimpleTech into the 8.1 and reformatted it using the Windows feature. The SimpleTech is alive and well on my 8.1.

Hello, you relly need to reformat it you can use an os installer suach as linux or windows using a usb flash drive, but you have to transfer the installer cd to the usb drive by using the wintoflash application. Once you've done that now you can reformat and install os in your notebook using your usb flash drive.

The usb is formatted thru Fat32 and when plug into windows, it could has limited functionality. What you need to do is reformat the usb using NTFS type.

Please let me know if this works for you.

My laptop was corrupted. what will I do? I cannot open it...DO I have to reformat it?


1. If you have OS, XP, or Vista you have to insert it and try to click repair. See it heals. If it doesn't you have 50/50 chance of retrieving files in your laptop.
2. If it can't be opened. try to run DOS and reformat drive. second option is insert OS for reformat.


Thanks

Not formatting


I had the same problem with my 1GB SONY MicroVault Clip flash drive. Hardware and the drive shows up on Vista, but it refuses to open or format it.

1) IT MANAGED TO REFORMAT NICELY ON WINDOWS XP!!!! So try this, or
2) When the Micro Vault does not operate well, please download the format software from a "download" button and re-format the Micro Vault. http://www.sony.net/Products/Media/Microvault/products/usm-l/dl.html

(WARNING: After running this low level format tool,
the whole USB flash disk surface will be fully erased.
Therefore, data restoration will be impossible after using this utility!)

Problem with USB Flash


It is possible the memory stick is faulty. Are you using xp or vista? If so it should be recognised instantly. I bought one the same a couple of weeks ago, and it recognised it instantly, and I'm using xp.

Try it on another computer if possible, even where you purchased it. Just tell them you think it's faulty. If it works on that computer then you have a problem with either your usb ports or you have a virus.
