Re: How to fix corrupted USB flash drive

The data lost from the storage media can be very frustrating.Not sure but scanning can repair the corrupted drive. If you have norton system works (specifically Norton Disk Doctor), you can try to run it and repair the drive. Also try to get in the Properties of your drive in My Computer. If you can reach there In the Properties dialog box you will want to choose the Tools Tab. In this tab you will want to run the Error-checking tool, there is a button that says Check Now, click this. Hope this will fix the error. Do let me know the result.

The best way to repair corrupted USB drive is to go to Properties than Tools. Run Error Checking and Scan for errors and fix them. If you can not do this than the only thing that i can think of is your going to have to format and then get yourself a copy of something like "Easy Recovery Pro" to get the lost data. Thats it!!
