Chips are not like platters when recovering data. When the device fails, it's gone. At best, you can recover part of files. The intended usage is file transport, not long term storage.

Depends. Either the file is bad or like you said the usb is bad.

See if any of the recovery apps will retrieve them. Testdisk and photorec and many others exist.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.
