So I have been searching for a while and can't seem to find any solutions.
I have a USB that a) does not show up in File Explorer (Windows 10) and b) says no media in Disk Management
Every time I look for a fix they say "Backup the files using EaseUS (or something similar)" but I can't even do that because the computer doesn't even see the drive properly.
Has anyone else had this issue before and that could help me out or point me in the right direction?

Thanks in advanced.

Do you have other USB drives that work? If do you may simply have a bad drive.
Yes I know that's it's a bad drive but I have important files on said drive and need to know if anyone has a possible fix software wise before I go ahead and try soldering wires to data pins and whatnot

have you tried it in another PC?

Have you tried accessing it from another operating system? I had a USB that I thought was dead but then I reinstalled windows and have since found it works again.

Have you connected it to another device? Did you try to fix it by using CHKDSK or assigning a new drive letter?
If they all failed, maybe you should stop using this drive and then use a third party, such as Bitwar, Wondershare, Disk Drill, etc. to recover the important files from the USB drive.
Good luck.
