USB Recovery


Recommended Posts



What is best program to recover data from broken USB stick. Stick is not shown in my computer and also not in Windows Disk Manager. It is shown in device manager as USB mass storage device.


Is there anyway to recover data from it?


I have Win 10, Win 7, OS X Sierra, FreeBSD 11.1 and Kali. Is there any good tool to recover data from USB sticks for those OSs?


Thank you

There are a few factors if it can be done.  One being the cause of the stick not being recognized by the computer.  Is there physical damage for example, possibly broke the USB connector, or just a corrupt drive?  If you feel there is no sort of physical damage and that the drive is corrupt just do a search for data recovery programs(free and paid options) and run a scan on the drive.  

Since the drive is being recognized by device manager there is a chance that it is just corrupt.  But there is no guarantee as to how much if any can be recovered.
