Trying to recover data from usb thumb drive

Hi

My Sandisk 16Gb seems to be playing up.

This is what is reported in Windows 10:-

The following is what happened when I ran a detailed report in TestDIsk

Backup boot sector

Sectors are identical.

A valid FAT Boot sector must be present in order to access
any data; even if the partition is not bootable.


Finally I tried PhotoRec and this is what it produced

Is there any hope of getting data back from this usb thumb drive?

PhotoRec doesn't recover anything, so there is no chance to recover data via a software solution.
If you really valued your data, contact a data recovery company.
