how will you feel if you save all your important documents on a flash drive or disk and a friend borrowed it from you only to tell you later that the flash is not working again. thats exactly what happened to me. he didnt even tell me that he has spoilt the flash until i asked for the flash. he was laugh and tell me that it's spoilt. i cant believe him. i hate the guy cos he is very jealous and i have my CV on the flash too.

The friend whom messed up your flash should be a friend enough to replace it for you. But from reading your discussion, it doesn't sound like ya'll are very good friends at all. So first off, you shouldn't have let him borrow it. Secondly it sounds like you will have to replace it yourself. Either way it does seem what you had on it, is now long gone.

he is yet to explain to me what happened to my flash, he never talks about it except the first day i asked him for the flash. i will replace it myself, but i nolonger want to keep the guy as my friend, cos he is very jealous, he lacks creativity and will jump in to do whatever you do and keep telling you that he will do that better than you. he never initiate anything he only keep telling you that he will be better than you in what you do. he told me he cooks better than me after eating my food and my other friends said that i am better. he saw some programming books on my CV and he wanted them, when he spoilt the flash, he told me that his only regret is that he didnt copy those books to his laptop forgetting about my documents, i guess i have learnt my lessons.

You're the one who let him have the drive in the first place knowing all of your important documents are on it. Either don't loan people stuff that can get messed up, lost, destroyed or let them have it with the expectation of Murphy's Law (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Murphy's_law) knowing that if something goes wrong it will. Your friend at least should pay you the cost of a new drive because he had it in his care and if something happened to your stuff in their care it's only fair that he pay you back.
