I am having problems with my flash drive. It was working two days ago but when I tried it this morning, the computer didn't recognize a thing. I've tried other ports and other flash drives (the other drives work). When I pull the drive out, it feels slightly warm to the touch at the point of contact. What concerns me is the fact that I have my entire folder of documents located on this drive. I recently moved it from my old drive because I was having problems with the computer recognizing the drive and I didn't want to lose years of information. Apparently now I'm stuck with the problem I wanted to avoid. Is there any way to solve this problem? I don't have a personal computer and I don't have administrator access on any of the public computers so I am limited in what I can actually do. When I go into the "Properties" on the drive and click the "check" option, it asks me if I want to format the disk, which is something I really don't want to do. I really need to recover my data. I do a lot of creative writing and as I've said, I've got years of work stuck on this flash drive. I didn't expect this to happen because it's the newest drive I own (which is why I moved my folder over to it from my old one) but it did. Now the question is, what can I do about it?
