Unless you are an expert to the extreme with electronics,and soldering, its a very good chance (99.1%) the answer is no.

In fact , ive seen this issue happen more often then one would think.

My flashdrive won't respond at all. I think that it was somehow disconnected on the inside, but I have no way of knowing. Is there any way that I can retrieve the data or fix the flashdrive?


you can try some data recovery software. You can see
http://www.asoftech.com/articles/undelete-files-from-usb-drive.html
It tells the steps how to perform data recovery.

If above does not work, you may have to format the flash drive (use quick format), and then use above mentioned software to scan again the flash drive and recover your files.

Hi Oscarmegs,
Your data on the hard drive are lost due to physical damage.But don't worry,you can recover data from hard drive with data recovery software.I have succeed with Tenorshare data recovery.It can recover data after deeply scanning your hard drive to look for lost data due to drives crash, physical damage,system sabotage etc.
Anyway,download a trial version and scan your hard drive for free to preview whether your files can be recovered. http://www.any-data-recovery.com/index.htm

If an IT professional has already tried I would doubt if you will be able to recover any of the info.

This isa good example of the need to have a backup of any drive.

Broken usb flash drive


The data is not destroyed, but it will be tricky to fix. I would suggest you find a local computer tech who is really good soldering tiny stuff. Or go to a Radio/TV repair shop. I think it will be possible to re-connect the wires and make it work.

You may want to try to run "checkdisk" on the flashdrive. Go to My Computer and right click your flashdrive and select "properties." Select the "tools" tab. Click on "check now" in the error-checking box. Follow the directions from there.

Also, you can try to defrag the flashdrive. Go to: start>programs>accessories>system tools>disk degragmenter. Then select your flashdrive.

Additionally, you may want to consider ditching the flashdrive software and just use it as a regular flashdrive. In that case:
Go to My Computer, right click you flashdrive and select format.

If you want to recover the data on your flashdrive now, try this (free) software called "Resoration":
