USB stick data unavailable

#1 Post by Goldtam » 23 Dec 2016, 17:48

Hello all,

I can't access anymore to data on my USB stick.

When I plug the USB stick in, Windows displays:

So I use testdisk and proceed on the selected line:

I choose Intel/PC Partition (automaticly testdisk is on this option) then analyse.

No partition is found during Quick Search:

I do a deeper search but still no partition found:

If I try Advanced, it said that I have no partition available:

Do you know how can I have the data back ? None tools detect any files on the usb stick.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Regards,

You can try PhotoRec 7.1-WIP but I don't know if it will work, the flash controller of the USB key may be damaged.

Hello,

Thank you for your quick answer.
Photorec find this:

But if I do search, no file is found (for the 2 options given: fat and src):

If the flash controller of the usb key is damaged, can it be fixed ?
Thank you again and Merry Christmas.
