I have a co-worker that brought in a flash drive she was saving family pictures and videos on (not a good idea I know) says she is unable to see the drive anymore and it asks to format it. Luckily she was smart enough not to click that button.
So far I have tried SpinRite at level 2 and everything came back fine. It is currently running again at level 4 but something tells me it’s going to come back fine again. I tried mounting it in my pop os 19.10 laptop but and it seemed like it worked for a bit until it came back with unreadable sectors and refused to image anymore.
Does anyone have any other ideas as to what I could do to help this lady out? other than a data recovery service. Right now SpinRite says 20hrs to complete this level 4 (ughhh).
The .img file I have on my laptop is unable to mount right now figured I could at least get something off that since it did run for about 10-15 min. I’ll have to boot it back up to get the actual error it was throwing.
