I have a Verbatim Store 'n' Go Red 4G memory stick. My Windows 7 computer stopped recognizing my drive all of a sudden. Whenever I try to open it, a message told me that this drive is not formatted and prompting me to format it. Please help me to recover lost data from Verbatim Store! I am on a mission and have valuable data on my memory stick. I need the data back. Thanks in advance.
When facing the digital data loss issue, the first thing you need to do is stop using the flash drive and find data recovery software on the internet. You need to restore lost data from your Verbatim Store memory stick before you decide to format it.
Here is my recommendation for software to help you: Recoverit Data Recovery for Windows, or it's mac version: Recoverit Data Recovery for Mac. It can recover all of your precious and sensitive data from the flash drive, memory stick, cell phone, computer hard drive, etc.
Additionally, you can download a trial version of the Verbatim Store Recovery program to scan your Verbatim Store storage device to check whether files found by it are what you going to retrieve or not.
Before performing the recovery, please be sure that your Verbatim Store can be recognized by your computer.
To retrieve lost data from your Verbatim Store storage device, you can select the "External Devices" option to start.
You just need to select the hard drive for your Verbatim Store storage device and then click "Start" to scan it.
Note: If the quick scan can't find your lost data, you can go to "All-Around Recovery" for a deeper scanning result, but it takes longer. You should choose this option if the quick scan does not detect what you lost.
After the scan, the scanning result will be displayed in categories such as "photos", "documents", "videos", etc. You will be able to preview images and document files before recovery.
In the end, you just need to select files you are going to retrieve and click "Recover" to keep them on your computer.
Note: it is important to save the recovered files to a new storage device or save them on your computer. Directly saving them to your Verbatim Store storage device might cause the data to be overwritten.
