Flash Drive Data Recovery
Table of Contents

Our lives are intricately connected to the vast amount of data we accumulate over time. SanDisk flash drives have been a reliable companion for storing and transporting this valuable information. 

However, what happens when your trusted SanDisk flash drive suddenly is not recognized, leaving you in a state of panic and frustration? This is where PITS Global Data Recovery Services comes to the rescue. 

In this blog, we will walk you through a real-life case of a SanDisk Cruzer Glide flash drive not working and how we successfully recovered the client’s precious data.

The Evaluation: SanDisk Cruzer Glide USB is not Working

Our journey begins with a distressed client who had a SanDisk flash drive that had ceased to function. When our client reached out to us with the issue, our first step was to conduct a thorough evaluation to determine the root cause of the problem. Here are some common reasons why a SanDisk flash drive may not be working or detected:

  • Physical Damage. One of the most frequent culprits is physical damage to the flash drive, such as a bent connector or broken internal components. This can render the drive inoperable.
  • Corrupted File System. Over time, the file system on a flash drive can become corrupted due to improper ejection, power interruptions, or malware infections. This corruption can prevent the drive from being recognized.
  • Outdated or Missing USB Drivers. In some cases, outdated or missing USB drivers on the host computer can lead to issues in detecting and using the SanDisk flash drive.
  • USB Port Problems. Faulty USB ports on the computer can also be responsible for the drive not being recognized. A simple USB port issue may not be a drive problem at all.

  • Accidentally Deleted or Formatted Data. Human error can lead to accidental deletion or formatting of data on the flash drive, making it appear as if the drive is not working.

With these potential issues in mind, our team embarked on a comprehensive evaluation of the client’s SanDisk flash drive. We began by connecting the drive to a Windows computer to assess its status.

Diagnostics of the SanDisk Cruzer Glide Flash Drive not Recognized

Our technician connected the SanDisk Cruzer Glide flash drive to a functional USB port. If the drive had a physical issue, this step would help us identify it. However, in this case, the drive was recognized by the computer, indicating that it was not physically damaged.

Next, our technician opened the Device Manager and Disk Management. This allowed us to verify whether the flash drive was visible at the system level. It could indicate a file system or driver issue if it appeared here. 

In this case, the SanDisk flash drive was indeed detected in both places, eliminating physical damage and hardware problems as the root cause.
