I have a thumb drive with a lot of data on it. I keep putting it in the computer in the USB slot and it keeps saying " F Drive is not formatted". Is there anything I can do to recover my data on the disk. I tried this in several computers and received the same results. Anyone out there have a solution. If there is none just tell me.

Thanks

Right click on My Computer, Manage, Disk Management. Find the drive in Disk management and right click on it. Select Format, and use the FAT format if it gives you the option.

Oops, you're right. You might try Smart FLASH Recovery and see if it can access the data. There are also many programs that you pay for, but I can't comment on how well they'll work.

Good evening tallent, if you have any problems you might have a look at this program it is specially designed for that kind of problem. It is called "recovery manager" it is especially applicable to flash-drives.
