hard drives..the Cruzer had a FAT (File Atribute Table) on it. IF it was trashed for some reason (like a magnet?) opening the drive wouldn't show any files. It shows 1/2 full because the FAT isn't used to determine size. Download Ontrak File Recovery Trial and see if it doesn't at least see the files on the Cruzer. If it does, then you may have to find someone with similar recovery software or you'll have to buy it. Sorry. Let us know.
and life goes on...
i have a Cruzer micro drive 512mb, the thing is that when click on properties it shows me that the drive is half full but when i open the drive i see no files and zero bytes of information at the status bar.
i have enabled to show all hidden files but nothing still comes up. i used it to back up some files from a previous computer and then formated the drive and started over but it does not come up no matter what computer i put it in. can anything be done to get the files back??
