    dad's heavily used flash drive just decided to die on him. the only file he had on there that he didnt have another copy of was one that he deleted from his laptop a couple of weeks ago.

    what trusted data recovery software would you recommend? i realise the chances of the data still being intact are slim.

    what about recovery from the flash drive? it's totally unresponsive when plugged in. neither of the computers we have with us notice anything plugged in, and the activity light on the flash drive doesnt come on.

    thanks for your help.

    if you get nothiing from the drive, it's likely that you're boned.

    When I accidentally formatted one of my flash drives, this was the best software I could find to recover the files: http://www.bitmart.net/r2k.shtml

    You can download the demo version to see if it can even find the drive or not.
