Memory Stick Problems

By tomwoodsv

  1. Due to some issues, I had to reformat my hard drive and reinstall Windows 2000. I had a USB hub plugged into my pc with a memory stick in one of the slots. I had some files copied/backed up on the memory stick. Now when I try to retrieve the files using Windows Explorer, Explorer is acting like my files are gone and it says the stick needs to be formatted. I also tried retrieving the files by plugging the stick into my laptop and I got the same results. I'm afraid that somehow the files got wiped out while I was formatting and reinstalling Windows, but I don't know how it would have happened. Has anyone else ever experienced this or can someone offer me some suggestions.
