Flash Drive

I have a flash drive with my friends bike pics on it. It use to work fine but now everytime I put into the usb slot there use to be a window asking me how I want to open it and view the pics. Now when I go into "My Computer" and click on the drive it prompts a screen telling me I need to format it. My question is, does anyone know how to get the pics of the flash drive without having to format it so I dont loose the pics?

Re: Flash Drive

your chances of recovering the pics are slim to none. the filesystem is mostly likely corrupt. how do you remove the flash drive? do you just pull it out or do you actually unmount the drive before pulling it out?

Re: Flash Drive

Drive sounds screwed.. There are some apps out there that will try to recover files as long as it can see the drive, but the good ones aren't free.

Re: Flash Drive

Look for a photo recovery tool for a camera memory card. There are some good ones out there and they are cheap or free. The full on file recovery programs tend to be more expensive. Try ZAR:

Re: Flash Drive

goto the my computer on your machine whent he drive is inserted, and right click on the drive and select properties. Goto the tools tab, and select error checking. when the dialog box comes up and asks you to automatically fix errors, check that box, and also check the other box to scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors and click ok.

This will run a checkdisk on your thumb drive and attempt to recover the lost files and bad sectors. A lot of times, if you just boot your computer up with the drive in, the checkdisk command will run automatically.

Re: Flash Drive

right click on my computer
choose "manage"
goto disk management
and see if it will let you assign a drive letter without formatting..

it may or may not work

Re: Flash Drive

You lost the only copy of important files, and must be retrieved. Digital photo recovery hard drives, memory cards, digital cameras and other players is one of the most common data recovery. digital storage media is very fragile compared to photographic prints, and digital camera users often make a single copy of your precious photos before deleting the original. This results in tragedy when the copy unreadable.
