Hi !
I have the same problem as the guy here:
I left usb stick in plugged in the laptop for some days and when i tried upload some files on the server today i realised that most of the files are corrupted (not all of it)
Folders are fine and then when u open it there is a bunch o weired signs instead of file names and u cant access them as there a "label syntax is incorrect" error.

The data is very important to me (mostly graphic files ) and i dont have a back up as the files were in the "process" and I was going to make backup copy after they done.

Please help me ! any

You should never ever put any important files on to a usb stick unless you also have copies of those files somewhere else.

usb sticks are for temporary, short-term storage only, to transfer files from one PC to another, for example. They are too unreliable for using as a backup medium. I fear you have lost those files.

A valuable lesson to you in keeping precious files backed up in on at least 2 drives in future.

yes no one leaves a usb stick plugged in a laptop for days without removing it the second ur done with it. once data is corrupt on a usb there is little chance of recovering it, ur files are lost. like said this should be a lesson

computers are a second home

@pip22, toxict51

I dont see a reason why are u here...
If u dont have a solution to my problem or anything helpful to add then ur posts are just unimportant rubbish.
There is no warnings about leaving usb sticks plugged in as the data may got corrupted and such.
I also already said that I forgot to make a back up copy as I plannned to do it straight after i'm done with the files, my bad... but you...
you just remains me of a post wh*res...

your welcome ! ;]
