Hard drives store information by writing it on its magnetic layer called the platter. When you want to access the data, the disk motor spins the platter. This way, the location of data is placed below the read/write head of the drive. The device then reads the data and displays/plays the data. Over the years, another popular means if data storage is the flash memory. Unlike a hard disk where data is written on a magnetic layer, the data in flash drive is written to an array of memory cells through electrical charges. Therefore, these devices do not warm up and
store more data much faster than hard drives.

Flash drives (commonly known as USBs) are prone to common causes of data loss such as power surges along with human error and viruses. Your USB can get corrupted or unresponsive because of physical or logical corruption.

File Recovery from Logical Issues:

You can easily fix these logical/software issues. In order to do so, you have to repair the file structure so that the USB flash drive is reusable again. Here is a simple guide:
• Insert the USB into the USB port of your system and go to the Removable Disk icon in My Computer.
• Right click and go the properties of the Removal Disk. Click on the Tools button.
• Then, click on the check now button you will get two options; Automatic fix file system errors or Scan for and attempt recovery bad sectors.
• Check both boxes and click on start tab.

File Recovery from Physical Issues:

Common physical issues include a broken circuit board, connector or NAND memory chip of the drives. In such cases, the hardware needs repair or replacement. Do not attempt to do this yourself or you will worsen the problem. It is better to get professional help from the experts from recover-my-data.co.uk who specialize in recovering data from a physically damaged USB drive.
Dead Drives and Broken Stems and Connectors: If your USB has physical errors, you will receive error messages after you connect your USB such as device not recognised, please insert disk into removable disk, format your disk etc. These errors also occur, when the USB controller gets corrupt. NAND memory can be another reason for this as well. Low grade or generic NAND memory chips lead to such issues and the frequent number of read and writes worsen the state of the drive. When the system fails to detect your USB, you are unable to use your USB this can be because of an issue with the USB port, not USB drive. Before you attempt any repairing measures, see that the USB port is working fine.

When the USB’s circuit board is damaged or its silver USB connector is broken, it can lead to power supply cut-off to the flash drive. This calls for circuit repair and soldering. Do not try to do this on your own as you might lose access to your USB permanently and lessen the chances of recovering your data as well.
