    I have a usb pen drive that somebody has dropped. It does not appear in my computer or device manager. Does anyone know any free software i could try to recover the files.

    any tool, like restoration, will need access to the drive first. if it doesn't appear in device manager to begin with, no tool will help you restore files.

    We have BIG prob with these devices with thepupils at my school. USB devices are one of the things that we have problems getting data off if there has been a problem. HDD and floppies seem to be no problem, but flash drive :x

    There are recovery firms that will usualy manage to get the data back.

    You have to pay though.

    If you are still interested shout and I'll dig out the info.
