Balena destroyed my USB drive ! How to recover?


#1

I created a bootable USB drive with the program for Mac OS. So the drive is no longer read on Mac OS, tb is not read on Ubuntu. So I lost my usb drive?
What can I do to recover it?


#2

Hi,
Which image did you flash on the drive? Some images might not be recognizable once flashed due to different partitioning but the drive itself shouldn’t be affected, so you can try one of the processes listed here.

Following the procedures on the page, the result was even worse. Before, at least the OS asked something about the drive, now, not even know that I put it. It disappeared completely. Any other issues?


#4

Did you already check Disk Utils on OSX to see if it’s there when you plug it in?


#5

Yes, I have Macs since 1995.
As soon as I put the drive in, I would give a message and open the disk utility. But now, after following the advice of the page that you have sent, neither does it happen. The drive is dead and buried.

Detail, opened the Disk Utility, not the drive.
