I am trying to recover files from a usb drive with a corrupted filesystem, thus far I have had no luck. When hooking it up to a machine with Ubuntu I get the following information:

I have tried testdisk and some data recovery software to no avail..

I am hoping someone can help me recover the files on this usb drive, perhaps with the help of these log files. I would be eternally grateful to you if you can help me restore the data on this drive.

USB error -110 means power exceeded, the computer sys could not provide enough power for the pendirve to operate. Thus the device can not provide any data i.e device descriptor thus the computer cannot identify it.

Your motherboard is probably not getting enough power, or too many devices connected. Unplug everything and unplug the computer from wall for ~3 min for Mb to drain. Restart and try again with absolute minimal things plugged in.

Is anything obvious standing out? I.e. 180V Mains on a 240V Computer? Dirty USB connection pins?

Else try a friends computer with USB 3.0, I know some USB 3.0 Pendrives cannot run on USB 2.0 ports. just not enough power.

Let me know in the comments below if you need recovery help as well. =D Good luck!

  • Interesting, I also tried it on a Windows 7 machine where it would just show the USB drive as 0/0bytes and saying it needs formatting. It is indeed a USB 3.0 drive. I will try that solution, hopefully it will help. – Nicky Tellekamp Feb 20 '14 at 10:42
