Can I recover data on my hard drive?

Episode 1645 (2:17:33)

Robert from Fountain Valley, California
Solid State Hard Drive

Robert has two USB hard drives that have data on them that he's lost. How can he recover them? Leo says it's possible that Robert was detaching the hard drive as it was writing and it corrupted the drive. You could try a file recovery app like Recuva, but if you removed the drive while it's writing, the data is likely scuffed.
