[quote=“irishstu”]I’ve had good results with PC Inspector File Recovery:
Just tried it, and couldn’t really make much of the help files or instructions. When scanning for drives, it found several ‘bad parameters in boot sector’ for the USB in question. Under the tab “Logical Drive” it offered “yyyyyyy (with umlauts) on Windows drive F”, which is my USB. But I couldn’t figure out how to move forward from there to repair or recover anything.
Double-clicking on other drives, I get a page showing these folders: Root, Deleted, Lost, and Searched; and Root and Deleted are expandable, with content I can select and save. Clicking drive F gives me a page with the same folders, but they’re not expandable, as if the whole drive were empty.
So, I’m still stuck. But thanks anyway!
Do you think I should just go ahead and reformat the drive?
