OMG… the data is the essence and life of my business, livelihood especially during this COVID-19. There was around 50-100MB worth of data files, all records, accounts etc. Without this its all gone

USB flash drivers are reallly unreliable

I’m sorry for your loss. You should always consider backing up your data. At least you could have used the cloud. USB flash drives are one of the most unreliable ways to keep your data. They can easily be damaged just by hitting off the ground. You should understand this. I used to work at https://transformagency.com/, and imagine if all of our projects would be saved on the USB. That would be the loss of losses. So, always back your data. I think you can give your USB to the service. They what to do with it.
