Windows 10: Is my SanDisk Cruzer destroyed? Solved

    Is my SanDisk Cruzer destroyed?


    I plugged in my USB drive and I get notification USB device not recognized. In This PC it shows but it looks like this:

If it is of any help, it's SanDisk Cruzer 16GB.

    Edit: Just tried HP USB Disk Storage Tool. This is what it shows:

    You were completely wrong. After reinstalling my system, I plugged in the drive and it works normally. I have no idea why, but now it works withoutany issues whatsoever... I assume there was a malware in the previous system, but I used Malwarebytes and Avast and none seemed to detect anything...
