sandisk flash drive file recovery

I had some papers downloaded on my flash drive, and deleted them in error.  Is it possible to retrieve deleted files from my flash drive? If so how?


for this problem, you will need to instal a program to recover data
a good freeware version of such program would be Recuva of Piriform
Piriform is also the maker of the well known CCleaner

Equipped with three different data recovery modes like Quick Scan, Extensive Scan and File Trace, Kernel for Windows Data Recovery software is the most effective software that can restore the lost data in almost every condition. It can retrieve all deleted files from your flash drive. for more details - File Recovery

SOLUTION 1 - Verify if minimum operating system requirements are met.

Minimum operating systems supported by Cruzers:
Windows Vista, Windows XP SP2,Windows 2000 SP4.
Mac users, see My USB flash drive cannot be detected on a MAC computer.

SOLUTION 2 - Try other USB ports if the light on the Cruzer flash drive does NOT illuminate when plugged in.

NOTE: If the Cruzer is not receiving ample amount of power from the USB port, it will not function properly.

SOLUTION 3 - Check status of the Cruzer under Device Manager.

STEP 1 - Connect the Cruzer to the PC

If you receive a “USB Device Not Recognized” error on the computer, the flash drive is most likely failed. Additional troubleshooting is unlikely to correct the problem.

STEP 2 - Check under Device Manager

  1. Right-click My Computer, and select Manage.

  2. Click Device Manager on the left pane.

NOTE: The Cruzer might show up under several places under Device Manager such as:

  1. Disk Drives
  2. DVD/CD-ROM drives
  3. Universal Serial Bus controls as USB Mass Storage.  

If there is a yellow exclamation point (!) or question mark (?) beside the device, try to refresh the drivers.

STEP 3 - Refresh the drivers

  1. Right-click on the entry with the error mark, select Uninstall.

  2. On the top menu, click Action then select Scan for hardware changes.

STEP 4 - Verify if the flash drive is detected

  1. Double-click My Computer.
  2. Look for the Cruzer under devices with removable storage.

SOLUTION 4 - There might be a conflict in drive letters, see Resolving drive letter conflict.
