View Full Version : Lost partition on flash drive

31-07-2006, 10:07 PM
Hi there,

I have an Imation 256MB flash drive, which quite some time ago I partioned into drives (using the software that came loaded on the flash drive). This worked fine, until today the password protected drive has disappeared. I have tried the key on another computer but same result - only one of the drives is showing.

Any suggestions as to whether the other drive (which has some valuable data on it - naturally!) can still be accessed? Can a flash drive by affected in any way by magnets or anything similar, or does that not happen these days?

Many thanks

PS Using Windows XP Professional

If you bump them too hard, yes, they can fail. (I learned the hard way!)
