This file is corrupt and cannot be opened.

Recommended Posts

Recently downloaded Windows 10 to my USB and i have lost all of my college work from my USB. I have used the free recuva software to try and retrieve my missing files and it had found them so I then saved them to my computers HDD but when I open them the writing is all in gibberish writing? thanks for any help.

Did you download the Win10 .iso file to the USB stick or use some program to burn that .iso image to the USB to make it a bootable device?

either way, your recovery chances are poor.
the first option has stored a large file to your USB, over writing a good chunk of space, and the second option would have wiped the stick prior to coping the large .iso file.

what is the size of this stick, and was it formatted as FAT or NTFS?
