I have a tiny 8GB flash drive by PNY . After 6 mos of use I pulled it from my computer and the insides fell to the floor (rug) from the plastic case.
Is it possible to reassemble and reattach it inside the case? Thanks.

Is it still working?

If it is still working I've used 2 part Epoxy in the past since it dries fast and strong. That flash drive is still working. The epoxy works real good. I got mine at the Auto parts store. That is basically like encapsulating the drive. So if it goes bad that is it. I say that since I've had to open a few in the past and re-solder the USB plug to the circuit board. Sometimes the solder breaks from the constant insertion and removal.

Good Luck
