My USB was working and now it won't open and says that it is not formatted. I am scared to format it as I have crucial stuff on it that I cannot afford to lose. Can anyone advise me of how to fix this without losing all of my data??? Please help I am close to a nervous breakdown!!

First of all, learn a lesson and don't keep all your eggs in one basket in the future. Backup important data.

Try using "testdisk" to repair the partition/s. You may have been careless in how you remove the drive from the computer. You should always use the safely remove icon to disconnect the drive prior to actual removal.

Get testdisk from the link below. Be sure to read all the tutorials BEFORE attempting to use.
