Ask Max: Can I recover files from a damaged USB flash drive?

Asked on 04/17/2007:

I have a Dane ELEC 1GB flash key that lost its partition during a hard drive upgrade. Is there away to recover data on the key???


Data loss sometimes happens to USB thumb drives and digital camera memory cards. The good news is that the data is probably intact and recoverable. There are many applications out that can recover those lost files, but unfortunately I have yet to find a free Mac version. Data Rescue II is one that I have had recommended to me. I would recommend downloading their free demo before you buy, just to make sure that it works for you. I have yet to use it but would trust it more than the other download-only applications out there.
