Insert the USB drive into the computer system through the USB port.

Click on the “My computer- Removable disk icon. Then right-click the “Properties” tab to the Removable disk icon. Left-click the tools tab to select the button named “Rebuild” on it.
Let the computer do the task of scanning and restoring files that were previously corrupt.
Finally right- click the USB pen drive and click on eject to safely disconnect the drive from the computer system.

a USB drive's easiest fix is to format it through windows file explorer.


but if you have important data on it then... you're outta luck if it's totally corrupted.


Sometimes I could be lucky by using the recuva software to try and recover files.
