My PC suddenly got frozen, so I rebooted it. I removed my 8GB Imation USB without unplugging. When I inserted it into my PC again, my computer recognized my USB drive but I got the message that I need to format the USB if I want to use it. Is there any solution to solve my problem? I do need to get my data back!
