Issue: How to undelete files from USB drive?

I saved a great amount of important data on a USB flash drive, but my brother deleted it since it is his USB and he wanted to create more space. Does anyone know how to recover deleted files from a USB flash drive?

Solved Answer

files from USB drive snapshotSuch and similar scenario might happen to everyone, isn’t it? That’s why it’s not recommended to store important data in the USB Flash drive only. In many cases, users ask how to restore data on USB drive after accidentally formatting it or deleting the entire data. By the way, do not reject the fact that you may expose your USB flash drive to a virus-infected computer or even accidentally lose your device. The main causes of data loss on USB flash drive:

  • Accidental deletion of data from USB flash drive,
  • Failed transfer of data stored in the USB flash drive resulting in file deletion,
  • Accidental formatting of the device.
  • Unplug of the device during the transfer of the data.
  • Virus attack

Therefore, our advice in advance is to keep extra backups of your data in order to prevent data loss. If, however, due to any of aforementioned reasons you have just gone through that miserable experience of data loss on your USB device, don’t lose hope! There is still a possibility to get your photos, files, music, videos, documents, and other important data back.

What can a person feel when he/she understands that all documents, photos or similar data that has no extra copies have been deleted from the USB flash drive? Of course, panic. Nevertheless, panic is the worst companion in solving problems. Instead of that, it’s very important to think soberly, STOP using USB drive (no data transfer, no connection to other PCs) and don’t try to fix it manually since it’s NOT possible. Otherwise, you may permanently damage deleted files and lose the possibility of recovering important data once and for all.

Unfortunately, there is no way to recover deleted files from USB flash drive manually. You should either use a reliable program for data recovery or entrust this task to professional technicians. In case you decide to deliver your USB to a data recovery center, make sure that you have a considerable amount of money with you since the service will certainly be expensive.

Fortunately, there is a better solution for that. Instead of relying on other people, you can restore lost data from your USB yourself. Although it cannot be done by initiating some changes in the ‘Settings’ or something, you can install a USB recovery tool, for example, Windows – Data Recovery Pro and assign all the work for it. This program is powerful and user-friendly software appreciated by the users all over the world. It has been tested hundreds of times and showed outstanding results in data recovery.

When you restore data that has been deleted from your USB device, the next time be more careful and think about the immunity of the data. Neither your computer nor USB flash drive is a good storage for important data because they may be affected by various external causes. That’s why we highly recommend you to backup files from time to time using CDs, DVDs, cloud storage, such as Dropbox,Google Drive, Mega, etc. and other peripheral storage. This way, USB wreck will not be your wreck!
