I have an 8GB USB Drive that got corrupted (i don't know why).

 

I tried some solutions from the internet that didn't work.

I tried doing chkdsk on cmd. I didn't know what the drive label was, so i guessed F.

 

Unfortunately, this message appeared:

I also tried going to the drive's properties, but I couldn't find it.

And to be fair, I am not going to spend money just to recover my files.

 

Any alternative solutions?

Try Chkdsk  F:  /f  /x command.

If this does not work open Device Manager and uninstall driver of the USB Drive. Restart your computer.
