After unplug pendrive it stop to work. No problem in lost the data, it is already erased before the issue. Just want to save the usb drive to use again.

  • Tried to format but the windows could not format.
  • Tried to format by cmd but it didn't work too
  • Tried to use diskpart too: the clean and clean all command work fine but after it can't create new primary partition. I receveid the message [No usable free extent could be found. It may be that there is insufficient
    free space to create a partition at the specified size and offset. Specify
    different size and offset values or don't specify either to create the
    maximum sized partition. It may be that the disk is partitioned using the MBR disk
    partitioning format and the disk contains either 4 primary partitions, (no
    more partitions may be created), or 3 primary partitions and one extended
    partition, (only logical drives may be created)]

Try
diskpart > OK
select disk n > OK
clean and clean all > OK
create partition primary > No usable free extent could be found. It may be that there is insufficient
free space to create a partition at the specified size and offset. Specify

partitioning format and the disk contains either 4 primary partitions, (no
more partitions may be created), or 3 primary partitions and one extended
partition, (only logical drives may be created)

Try
diskpart > OK
list volume > OK
select volume > OK
format fs=fat32 > OK
create partition primary > No usable free extent could be found. It may be that there is insufficient
free space to create a partition at the specified size and offset. Specify

partition, (only logical drives may be created)

Search for another solutions but didn't find it at internet.

    Hi @Sandro AKKA

    It sounds like the pendrive has a hardware failure or a physical lock. Have you checked for a physical lock? There are some third party applications that may be able to help you with this:

    Recover It at Wondershare

    You may also want to try the following:

    1. Access Diskpart interface by pressing Windows +R, inputting “diskpart” and hitting Enter key.
    2. Run the commands listed below in order:

    list disk

    select disk m, m refers to the number of the USB drive

    clean

    create partition primary

    format fs=ntfs quick, ntfs can be replaced with exfat or fat32

    assign drive letter f, f refers to the drive letter for the USB drive partition and you can change it as you like.

    After a while, the corrupted USB drive will be repaired and you can access it and save data on it.

    I hope this answers your question.

    Thanks.
