User1: I have a 32GB SanDisk Flash drive which I often use to backup some important data from the hard disk drive. Today when I plug the flash drive to my computer again, it stops working and says need to be formatted error. I insert another new flash drive to this computer and it works well, so I think there is something wrong with my 32GB flash drive. But I have no idea what to do to fix the not formatted error without losing data.
User2: My 16GB flash drive has changed to rawfile system from FAT32. Windows OS only detects 8MB as its capacities, but I have more than 8GB data inside the flash drive. I have tried everything I can do to open the drive, but it always asks me to format the drive. Please help me out of this terrible situation and get back all the data from this flash drive.
User3: When I plug my 8GB Kingston USB flash drive in and try to access a file, I get an error message: "disk in drive F is not formatted do you want to format it now?". It is a quite new flash drive since I have been using it for a few months, but I have stored many files to the flash drive. I don’t think I want to format it because I can’t afford to lose the data inside. Then what can I do to fix the not formatted error on my flash drive so that I can get the data off the drive?
