I've been using my favourite 32GB USB flash drive for many months now without incident, but the other day I plugged it in to be greeted by the message "you need to format the disk drive before you can use it". I'm then unable to access any data of the drive. I've looked in the Windows Disk Management application and I can see my USB drive now has the partition type of RAW file system rather than FAT32. Is there any way I can get my data back, or will I just have to cut my losses and reformat it?
