Ill rather purchase new one in any ways and if there is important data in it then will try to solder few wires to it and connect to pc removing my data then not use it anymore even its working perfectly.

Good luck


From my point of view, most pendrive have the identical layout, that is:

*USB connector + Electronic circuitry+ the Flash memory.
*Only the casing differs.

Test your pendrive and if the 3 (top) parts are still functional..then discard the "bent" casing and try to use your imagination to replace it (recover and use parts from a old defective one).

But as computergroove1 mentioned, I'll would use it to save important data!
