Hi,

i recently back up my computer docs in a 8GB Data Traveller pen drive. after i formatted my laptop, i tried accessing my files on the pen drive and i have been experienceing strange things with it:-
  • when i check the properties of the 8 pen drive it shows the capacity as 250 GB!!!
    • no matter which folder i open in the pen drive the contents of all the folders are same.
    • it would show some new folders at time and at others those folders are not there. a couple of my folders have vanished all together.
    • it has changes the folders from some 500mb to 4kb weird looking files.
  • all the file names have disappeared and there are strange characters for each file names
  • i tried defragmenting the disk and it gave me the follwoing error --- disk defrag cannot continue prescan because there is corruption in file: F:\FOUND.000

    I hope someone from you can help me recover the data. its really important.

First off have you tried it in another computer? At least you will know where the problem is!

Honesty & Integrity Above All!

Yeah i did... but its all the same.... folders appear like files that dont have an associating file for them for eg- the way MS excel file would look like if there was no MS office installed on the computer.
