Lost Data Recovery from USB Drive

Formatted my USB thumb drive, how can I get my data back?

I accidentally formatted my thumb drive which had lots of important files including my favorite pics and some vital documents. It happened due to my urgency, instead of formatting the computer drive; I formatted the USB thumb drive which was connected to the system. Since, it was not the intended to be formatted. Hence I didn’t even think of taking the backup of my thumb drive data. Now, I have lost all my data stored on the thumb drive. I was worried about my documents; they were very much important for me and I need those files at any cost. It was an unbearable situation, which left me frustrated thinking about how to get back lost data from USB? When I shared this incident with my friends; one of them suggested me to use a file recovery software called Remo Recover. I just downloaded the software and within few minutes, I could see all my lost USB files.

Important Note:

Before discussing about the software and its features, note that; as soon as you lose your data from USB-stick or any device, “STOP” using the device. This is because; further usage of the device may overwrite your old lost data with new data, which leads to permanent data loss which is beyond recovery..

Recovery Process:

Actually, when you format your USB drive, your files will not be deleted only the entries about the file will be deleted and file still exists and are still recoverable. Remo recover can easily find such data and restore them within minutes. You may lose USB data when your USB device is corrupt or damaged due to improper handling like abruptly removing the device from the system or unexpected system shut down while transferring the files, file system corruption etc. Even in such cases this app successfully scans the entire device and recover data from corrupted USB devices also.

I was using thumb drive and hence, recovered from it, in case you are using some other device like hard drives, memory cards, SD cards, microSD cards, iPods, etc. don’t worry, Remo recover (Windows / Mac) supports all storage devices. Remo recover is a result-oriented tool, and thus the device used or the reason for the loss all becomes irrelevant for this software. It just recovers your data from your USB drive devices.

OS compatibility: Compatible with all versions of Windows and Mac OS X
File system supported: FAT16, FAT32, NTFS, NTFS 5, HFS, HFS + / HFS X, ExFAT

Remo Recover (Windows / Mac) is distinctive in many of its features. It is safest tool, and free from all types of infections like viruses, malwares or spyware. In addition, it provides you an option to examine its working with the help of the free trial version.

You may feel that you will have to scan the drive twice if you use Trial version, right? But, that’s not the case it has options like “Save Recovery Session” and “Open Recovery Session”,these help you to save the scanned info and then resume the process after purchasing the tool. Also, you can save the recovered files in a compressed zip format also, and on any device or location of your choice.
