so i am in a great trouble. a friend have gave me his usb (title) to get some files

and after plugin the drive i wanted to scan the drive, and by accident (i was talking with ...) i clicked format and format the drive

so i was fu*** up, the only idea i had is to recover the data using EASUS data recovery

so after i recovered the data the USB ws fu**** up too ,,,, i mean i can't neither format it neither add a file

then i tried to flash it and 'firmware things' but after 3h no result the usb wasn't detected by those flash software


Now i was looking in a forum and find a hint wich is :

>go to disk management >click format the usb (don't chose quick format)
