Windows 7: 1GB memory stick appears corrupt. Any data recovery options?

Well I have looked on the internet and i haven't found any GOOD data on bad sectors and flash drives. It sounds like once the sector is bad in the flash drive that is that.

I suppose we could try the chkdsk x:/r but i don't think we will be successful. So i leave it up to you. There are 3 choices.

We can give up and just toss the drive.
We can let photorec keep scanning and see if anything is salvageable. If not then we can toss the drive.
Or last we can try chkdsk x:/r and if it doesn't work toss the drive.

Im sorry it has come down to this. I gave it my best shot.

Well sorry it didn't work out.

Hopefully they make flash drives much more reliable in the future. I wonder if ssd's have the same problem.

In case if you have got corrupted memory stick then, simply make use of Remo

helps you too in making data recovery with great ease...
