My daughter has saved her homework project on a memory stick which she uses on my samsung laptop and at school to print off her work. The memory stick does not register when it is plugged into the port on the laptop, and has now snapped so the metal plug is separate from the main part of the stick. You can see all the chip and micro technology usualy on the inside of the plastic casing. She has not backed any of this up. The information must still be in there but how can we rescue it from the stick?> Any ideas would be most welcome. Regards Jane

Welcome to Geeks2Go!

You can't 'rescue' it at home. Only a commercial data recovery company has any chance of retrieving the files off it, but they don't come cheap so you have to ask yourself how valuable the data is and how much you're willing to pay. There is also the risk that nothing is retrievable but you'll still have to pay them for trying.
