Hi,

Is there a method to retrieve files from this NTFS USB?

It was working but stopped.. I'd like to know if there is any way to retrieve files.

In dskmgmnt says unallocated

You may be able to pull the data using a live linux disk. 

 

If you have a Windows 8 or 10 computer it may be necessary to disable SecureBoot and enable CSM or Legacy Boot in your UEFI settings.

 

I usually recommend Puppy based distros as they are smaller but the copying of files is slightly different. Download the iso of Puppy Tahrpup. Burn the iso to a DVD or use Rufus to create a bootable USB flash drive. Boot to the puppy desktop. Attach your USB drive. A USB icon will appear next to your hard drive partitions labeled sdax in the lower left of the desktop. Click once on the USB icon. Do you see your files?

 

tahr64-6.0.5.iso

 

What is the make and model of the computer you are using? What OS. Is the computer UEFI?

 

Edit: Add link for Rufus

Not sure about UEFI, checked the panther folder but could not find text file to check

Open a command prompt and type

 

diskpart

list disk

 

Is there an asterisk under the GPT column?

 

Do you have a model number of the packard bell. It could be on the back or in the battery compartment if a laptop. I am not sure of the key press during boot to access your BIOS/UEFI settings.
