A USB Flash Drive is a reliable flash memory storage media, integrated with the USB (Universal Serial Bus) interface. It is a rewritable and removable kind of storage device, which is smaller in size than other popular storage devices. They are generally used to create backup of data and transfer files from one computer to another. However, in some situations, the USB flash drive may get damaged on your Mac OS X system and may lead to significant data loss situations. At this point, you must have an absolute backup to restore data from. In case the backup is not available, you are required to go for Mac Recovery solutions.
A USB flash drive does not contain any movable component. Like a typical internal hard drive, the USB flash drive does not have disk platters to store data and read/write heads to read data from and write data to the platters. Thus, they are not usually prone to mechanical failure and physical data loss situations. Still you may lose data from a flash drive, due to file system corruption, accidental deletion, disk corruption, USB flash drive formatting, and other similar reasons.
In Mac OS X operating system, USB flash drive corruption is indicated by strange behavior of the drive and a number of error messages. For instance, you may encounter an error message similar to the following ones while trying to access a USB flash drive through your Mac OS X machine:
“You have inserted a disk containing no volumes Mac OS X can read. To use unreadable volumes click initialize, to ignore and continue click ignore.”
“There is no disk on the drive.”
This behavior renders your flash drive inaccessible and causes severe data loss.
