somehow, our USB drive got borked up. neither of our computers (one PC, one Mac) can read it. they imply it is un-initialized, and want to format it.

now, this drive holds a bunch of music (i have spent hours ripping in all my CDs), but more importantly, it contains many photos.

we tried using DiskWarrior on the Mac, but apparently it won't work on our hardware (something about Intel CPUs, from what their help desk is telling me).

does anybody have any advice on a good utility to recover data?

its a 6 years old post and i do not why i'm replying to it.

you can try get data back for ntfs and get data back for fat. they are really good. or if you want to try freeware, then undelete, recuva are some of the good options.
