I cannot open my 8 GB pendrive. It contains valuable documents. I tried with - 'attrib -h -r -s /s /d g:\*.* ' - command. But it does not open. Please help me.

Hi Gosh

What is the make and model of your pen drive?

Will it open on another computer ?

Does it show in your device manager?

Hi

I suggest you try this:

If you still can't open your drive after the exterminator, I believe your drive is damaged.

Good luck

If it is showing in device manager then do a right click on the drive and click on "update driver". After updating the driver software check whether you are able to open the drive or not.
