    I paid for nothing. You did not resolve my problem. I am very unsatisfied because you stated that you have the solution.

    Thanks

    I said before, that my SanDisk Cruzer USB Flash Drive is locked because I entered several times a wrong password and I need to recover at least my a year data. I do not want to lose my data. The only option that the Cruzer is giving me is to erase the information and reformat the drive, which I do not want to do. That is the reason why I paid an "expert" to help me at least to recover my information.

Hello,

what kind of lock are you dealing with? are you unable to write to the drive or are you unable to open it?

    Hello again.

    Think you need to take a step back and realize that the password protection is there to protect your data. Surely when you put in the password it must have said that it would
    encrypt the drive and make it impossible to recover anything if you
    where to forget the password.


    what is the point of protecting your data with a password if people can just go around it?

    Now it is not impossible to recover the content from the drive but you will need professional assistance with it, and that will cost much more than 4$ or 20$.

    it will probably be difficult to locate a person who would be able to crack the encryption and recover the files at this point you have lost everything you had in it, with very small chance of recovering anything.

    But you can try file scavenger.

    http://www.quetek.com/prod02.htm --- download the demo and scan the drive with it, MAKE SURE YOU SELECT THE DISK FROM THE BOTTOM OF THE LIST --- MAKE SURE ITS THE USB DRIVE AND NOT SOMETHING ELSE. DO NOT SELECT A DRIVE LETTER.

    --- take the usb drive off the computer and then refresh the drive list, attach it back and refresh again, take note what appeared and select that disk. ---

    it still probably won't find your files, if you don't then there is no way for you to recover the files - make sure you selected the DISK from the bottom of the list and not a drive letter.

It would be difficult. They make them hard to get into unless you have the password; the password is not stored on the key or in fact anywhere. When you type the password to get into the key, it is modified using a "one way" encryption routine and the result is compared with what IS on the key. If they match, it starts decrypting.

I'm sorry but if you can follow the link below and try some tool and see if they work for you.

    In your case it is not possible to unlock it without formatting the data. If you are not satisfied you will get your money back. Solution cannot be crafted in favour of ones will.
