Flash Drive Crushed - Data Recovery

My flash drive was run over by a car but it seems only the outer plastic case was damaged. The actual card itself looks fine but get an error after inserting it into a USB port, "USB device not recognized."

Is there a way to put the chip onto another board to retrieve the data or some other way to retrieve the data?

There is no way to retrieve data if your flash drive is broken but you can surely try it on other system and check.
But if it does not work then the only way to retrieve data ( if it is very important ) is to contact the website mentioned above and they will do it for you

How to recover data


Hi, there. I suppose you must mean to recover data lost from your digital device. In this case, FileRetrieval is one of the best option. It can recover most file formats. If you are running mac os x, go to Data Recovery for Mac.

But just remember - DO NOT write anything back until you get the deleted data back. Best regards.

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!

How can i recover the data from my flash drive after forced to format


Deleting or formatting won't make the data in USB drive erased permanently.


Those deleted data is still stored on the USB drive , it's just invisible or inaccessible. Only the FAT or NFTS table is erased (the information about where those data were saved), but the real data are still intact there in sectors of the hard drive.


So as long as those data are not overwritten by new data, it's highly possible to recover them. And the MOST Effective way is to rely on some format recovery programs.


Try this flash drive recovery program named asoftech data recovery, which can recover data after deeply scanning your USB drive to look for lost data you accidentally deleted or formatted.
