USB Flash Drive Data Recovery Services

Millions of Americans store their essential text files, spreadsheets, and photos on portable USB flash drives. While flash drives are affordable and convenient, they often utilize low-quality components and a poor design, putting them at a high risk of failure. 

Physical damage, internal file corruption, and user error can each cause your flash drive to lose your critical files in an instant. But don’t panic—at TechFusion, we have decades of experience recovering lost files from damaged and corrupt USB drives, and we can help retrieve your documents as well. 

Whether you use your flash drive for work, school, or personal use, we know how much your files mean to you. Contact us at TechFusion today to start the process of retrieving your USB files.

What to Do When Your USB Flash Drive Fails

Realizing that your USB flash drive has stopped working may send you into a panic. However, remaining calm and following a few simple steps will help prevent further damage and give you the best chance of USB data recovery. 

  1. Eject the flash drive from your computer: If your computer recognizes your flash drive, the safest way to remove it is to right-click the flash drive icon and select “Eject” before removing the device. If the USB drive is unrecognizable, you can carefully remove it by pulling it out of the computer. 
  2. Place the USB drive in a secure location: Storing your USB drive in a cool, dry, safe location will prevent further damage. We recommend placing it in a small box or bag with cushioning to prevent it from moving during transport. 
  3. Contact TechFusion for assistance: Call our team or fill out our contact form with information about your data loss situation. We’ll reach out to you as soon as possible to walk you through your next steps. 

Additionally, here are a few actions to avoid when facing flash drive corruption:

  • Attempting to retrieve files yourself: Corrupt files can be confusing to work with, and trying to recover flash drive files yourself could result in further issues. Instead, it’s best to leave data recovery up to the professionals. 
  • Utilizing data recovery software: You can find dozens of data recovery programs for purchase online, but we recommend staying away from this kind of software. Most recovery programs cannot handle catastrophic data loss, so attempting to use one could corrupt your files even more.
  • Plugging the USB drive back into the computer: Once you remove your flash drive from your laptop or PC, avoid plugging it back in to check for improvement. Each time your computer tries to recognize the flash drive, it could create more damage in the process. 

The best way to recover deleted files from your USB drive is to send the device to our team. We utilize tried-and-true data recovery methods and proprietary technology that allow us to retrieve your files safely and efficiently.
