Probably not. If the computer won't recognize it there could be hidden damage to the circuit board or the underside of the chip - even the connections inside the chip would not be visible to the unaided eye. That's why backups of digital anything are important. I always told my students/clients if it would be a PITA to recreate/replace data (a Master's Thesis, or Financial Data) '''keep 3 copies '''with ''one in a different physical location''. If there's a fire or flood and your backups are with your original they'll likely be destroyed too. ''If this answer was helpful '''please remember to return an mark it''' Accepted.''
