Recovering lost USB memory stick data

My daughter recently saved a year 12 project on to a memory stick and unfortunately she is now unable to access the saved data as the memory stick seems to be faulty. Do you know of anyone who may be able to assist with the recovery of the data if at all possible.

There’s a number of data recovery services available but all of them are going to take your drive for some weeks. You can contact your local computer tech for more details.

If the drive has format or partition problems, then you can recover data using programs like the free Restoration program or more user friendly commercial programs like Recover My Files.

    1. If you are using a Mac, FileSalvage will recover data from a flash drive even if it won’t mount on your desktop. You can download the demo version from their website and try it. As long as the system bus recognizes the drive is attached you should be able to select it from the drop down menu under the Expert recovery option and scan the drive. FileSalvage will show you all the files that can be recovered with previews of them. If you find the file(s) you are looking for simply purchase the full version to recover it. It’s saved me a number of times.

    2. of course data entry services are very expensive that is why always make a backup of your files `,;
