I "broke" my USB flash drive. Any advice?
So I had my SanDisk Ultra Titanium plus 4 GB USB Flash Drive, which claims to be durable, in one of my computer’s USB ports. I reached for something past it and bumped it and I literally mean just about the softest tap you could give it and the light went off. The computer (or any other) no longer is recognizing it at all. Granted, the case was slightly opened from prior experiences but it shouldn’t have been enough to have this effect. To me it seems like the power isn’t getting from the port to any components of the USB anymore.
This is about as urgent as it gets for me. I contains the files for a big project due Friday that I obviously don’t have saved anywhere else. SanDisk isn’t being any help. I’ve been waiting on their live chat to find an agent for a half an hour.
If anyone has an idea of what could work then you’re my new hero. Any ideas?
Also, it’s password protected if that makes any difference.
