How to Back up Apacer USB Flash Drive

If you're still able to open files on the affected USB drive, just copy and paste the files to another storage space. This will protect your data even if the USB drive stops working. Should you be experiencing error messages such as "you need to format the disk", RAW drive, "flash drive not formatted", or find that the drive has bad sectors, file system corruption, or is now a ‘RAW drive’, then there’s a good chance you won’t be able to access the files. In this instance, use EaseUS hard disk data recovery as it should enable you to save the data on the drive.
