How to Recover Deleted USB Files

What is a USB flash drive?

A USB flash drive is a data storage device that includes flash memory with an integrated Universal Serial Bus (USB) interface. USB flash drives are typically removable and rewritable, and physically much smaller than a floppy disk. USB flash drives are often used for storage, back-up and transfer of computer files. They are smaller, faster, have thousands of times more capacity, and are more durable and reliable because they have no moving parts. USB flash drives use the USB mass storage standard, supported natively by modern operating systems such as Linux, Mac OS X, Windows, and other Unix-like systems, as well as many BIOS boot ROMs.

Have you lost files in a USB flash drive?

In our office, people always delete something useful in their USB flash drives. I believe it has happened to you, too. Such a high rate of data loss in USB flash drives is caused by the absence of recycle bin. If you deleted something in a USB flash drive you cannot find it in your recycle bin as you know. Most people think that if their files are deleted accidently from USB flash drive, they are gone. No! There’s a good chance to recover them. In fact the files are still there. It’s just that you can’t see them.

What should you do after the data loss?

If there are deleted files on the USB flash drive, please stop using this USB flash drive and make sure you do not save any data to it.
