This past week my little 4 GB Sandisk USB flash drive died on me, and unfortunately I didn’t have the information backed up onto another drive. I tried the drive on multiple computers with no luck. With that being said I took the drive to a local computer shop and they ran a program called “get data back,” but to no avail. They also took the flash drive apart to see if the internal prongs needed re-soldered, but everything was in tact based on their examination. My question is… Are all data restoration programs the same? Is there anything else I can try? When visiting a Sandisk blog this was a common program that was recommended
I also contacted the Geek Squad @ Best Buy for what it’s worth and they basically said they just farm it out and there were no guarantees. As you can see I’m a novice when it comes to trouble-shooting; so any help and/or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
