Remembering that no storage without a write protect can be trusted you always keep a backup copy somewhere so here is the tool I use to format flash drives. Just the google to find it here.
I have a flash drive that I've been using heavily for a while with no problems. Plugged it in last night and all the files/folders had disappeared. My PC still recognizes that it's there, but now reports that it needs to be formatted. I suspect that the partition may have been corrupted. I've tried the usual file recovery programs, but they won't recognize the drive either.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
