Etcher killed my USB stick


#21

I recovered the stick by entering the “Gestion des disque” that I suppose is called “Disk Administration” in the English version of Win 10. Th USB stick was not listed in the top part of the screen but appeared as a square in the lower part. I did right click on that square and selected Format and that is how I recovered my stick. The Format process will recreate the system volume information for the stick.
Best regards

EN LINUX:

  1. Expulsar unidad USB (con clic derecho en la misma, en el explorador de archivos, y luego en expulsar).
  2. Instalar Gparted o Partition Manager de KDE y/o abrir la aplicación
  3. Borrar tabla de particiones del pendrive (clic derecho, en el panel o espacio derecho) y luego crear una nueva (de tipo MS DOS o MBR).
  4. Clic derecho, Nueva. Elegir:
    • sistema de archivos FAT32 (si se usará en Windows, y sino, ext4)
    • tipo: Primaria
    • etiqueta: el nombre que quieran
    • lo demás queda sin tocar
  5. Aplicar cambios

En Windows es similar.
