Free recovery sofware for corrupted USB stick

  Halmer 18:26 14 Oct 2010

I'm really cross with myself as I've corrupted a USB stick today without sufficient back up. I'm desperate to recover the data.

Can anyone recommend something that I can use to have a go at recovering please. The files are still there but all the folder names are gobbilygook.

A long shot I know but I need to try.

I've tried that one - it finds deleted files but doesn't mend corrupted ones. Guess I'm shafted :(

I have not examined them at all but I guess there is a Free one there or a moderately priced one if those files are precious enough.

Irfanview can also manage to sort some Image files

Hi there I can tell how it feels to loose Data. I lost once data from my computer and it cost me almost 800 USD to recover it. And I prefer to protect it for 34 USD with ZenOK online backup.

Had a bit if success with the first one suggested by Graphicool1.

Word docs seem capput but have recovered some excel stuff even tho it says is knackered.

I'll keep trying and report back.
