Urgent data retrieval from USB stick.

  Sic 10:02 27 Apr 2007

Morning people, my colleague at work has some word documents on a USB pen drive that she saved on last night (stick is regularly used for moving docs between work machine and home PC).

This morning when pen drive is inserted into machine it is recognised but wont open and prompts for format, couple machines tried.

Any suggestions to get docs of pen drive? Its rather urgent so all ideas welcome!

click here for PC Inspector File Recovery - it's been a while since I used it, but I'm pretty sure it will recover data from USBs.

There does not appear to be an option to search for word docs, just pocket word docs (.psw) am i missing something on the interface?

You'll find freeware data recovery offerings for memory cards etc about halfway down this link:
