ADATA UVI128 16 GB Flash Drive Receovery

#1 Post by Skates » 09 Aug 2017, 02:59

I have a ADATA UVI128 USB flas drive that is giving the dreaded "would you like to format message" when inserted into a Windows PC. The drive was encrypted with the ADATA software, it is my understanding that it has some type of 256-bit encryption.

When running testdisk on the drive, no partitions are unfortunately found. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have attached a copy of the logfile: https://www.dropbox.com/s/q2gjhex75egoe ... k.zip?dl=0

Use your password to unlock the flash drive. Once it's done,
- run TestDisk, select the drive letter, partition type: None, Advanced, Boot, RebuildBS, List. If you can see your files, choose Write, confirm, Quit
- run PhotoRec, select the drive letter, Whole Disk, Search.

I apologize for the late reply, the USB stick does not give me the option of entering a password. When inserted into a Windows PC, I consistently receive a "would you like to format message" every few seconds until I have hundreds of dialogs open.

Any thoughts on how I should proceed?
