USB Disk Recovery

Hey everyone i'm a newby and was attempting to following along to "Type 1" solution from this page Recovering the Vista Bootloader with EasyBCD - NeoSmart Technologies Wiki

I was going to use my USB drive for booting and forgot that I had a bunch of files already on there. I chose the USB drive in the drop down and clicked "Install BCD" then "Write MBR." I attempted to boot my other computer that is having the boot problems and it didnt work. I now want to see if I can recover the documents from my usb and uninstall the EasyBCD so I can use it like normal again (it only loads like a driver now instead of a hard drive where I can browse my files). Please help, thank you.

EasyBCD doesn't format the USB when you choose "Install BCD" or "Write MBR"

Thanks

Try telling that to my poor USB stick. Those are the only two options I clicked on and one of them formatted my USB so that I can no longer browse my files, only run it like its trying to install a program.

I don't understand what you mean by that, Hansen.. "Run it like its trying to install a program"

Can you take a screenshot of disk management?
