This just happened a few months ago with another Cruzer Glide USB drive. Here comes take two… Just using it like normal when I unplugged it (not being used at the time), plugged it back in, and now it won’t show up as a listed drive on my Windows 7 PC.
In Disk Management, the partition is there with all it’s 14GB of important data! However it is described as “Read Only.” Unlike the previous USB drive that did the same thing, this time I cannot view the files on the drive to back them up!
I haven’t done a THING to it yet, so please, advise me on the steps I should take to:
Backup my data.
Hopefully repair it.
Again, the drive does not show up in Windows Explorer, but does show up in Disk Management. (Check the attachment)
I was advised last time on these forums to get a new USB drive. So I did, and now it happened again? AND I can’t access my files to back them up? How shotty are these SanDisk drives? If this doesn’t get resolved I’m NEVER buying SanDisk again!
