It cannot be repaired if it has actually broken into pieces. If it's still in one piece though, please post more information. What happens when you plug it in, any error messages?

It's not a good idea to use flash drives for any kind of permanent storage. Whether you can recover anything from it depends on if your windows still can see the flash drive.

A pretty good discussion on flash drive recovery software can be found in this previous thread:

Also, this worked very well for one user:

Flash drives are the least reliable of modern storage media. Add to that the possibility that the device may be lost, stolen, or physically damaged. These devices should never be trusted for primary storage of important files but should be used primarily as a transport media. Having the only copy of an important file on a flash drive is asking for trouble.

All files of any importance, wherever they are stored, need at least one backup copy while those of particular importance need 2 or more backup copies.

Or check the discussions and recovery software previously linked to in this thread.

Seems like this thread is starting over.

It all boils down to what WHY_04 means by "It is damaged now".

If this means physical damage (see question #4) then no amount of recovery software will help but there is a "vague possibility" of a repair if we had a full description of the damage.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
