Software Clinic: My USB drive won’t open!

Software Clinic: My USB drive won’t open!

The Software Clinic is our new series to help diagnose and solve any software issues you may be having. Send us a question, and we’ll do our best to find the solution.

This week, the question comes from Clara, who can’t access any files on her USB drive. Windows is asking her to format it, but there’s still data on there that she doesn’t want to lose.

In this video, I’ll show Clara how to get her USB drive back in working order with a free Windows utility called Partition Wizard. Check out the video below and save your USB!
