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

Your best bet is to reformat your drive. Go to your My Computer and select the drive. Right-click on the drive and select Format. you can then reformat the drive. Be warned this does delete all of the Data on the drive.

Hello, I have an 8GB PNY flash drive. Recently, I plugged it into my laptop and it does not show a single file on the drive. It shows the drive is full when I go to properties, but there is nothing on...


Files on a flash drive canbe corrupted if it is not removed from the USB port properly.
Before removing the flash drive click on the Safely Remove Hardware icon andthen click on the flash drive you want to remove and then remove the flashdrive when the computer message says it is Safe to remove.
To restore the flash drive you need to format the flash drive, but you willlose the data stored on the flash drive.
If you need the data on the flash drive these WEB sites may help: -

I had the same problem before, if you're using laptop build in card reader, try to download the driver first, also try to reformat your windows.. I had these problem in windows vista but now I've changed to windows 7 and these problem solved :)

I have a cruzer micro 16Gb flash drive with 14.9Gb


Did you reformat as NTFS instead of the default FAT32? FAT32 can only transfer files up to 4.0Gb in size. If you reformat as NTFS, you can move larger files.

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.
