How to Recover Deleted/Lost Files from Pen Drive?
What's A Pen Drive?
Extensively used by students and workers in various lines of work, pen drives, which are formally named as USB (Universal Serial Bus) flash drives, are mobile storage devices that can be connected to the computer for transferring files. Possessing a large storage capacity, being compact and portable as well as sold at low prices are their great merits. Pen drives are anti-seismic, heatproof, anti-magnetic, safe, and have high resistance to moisture. Either water or dust can barely seep into them, and they can hardly be scratched. The solid-state flash disk storage design prepares these drives to resist inadvertent external impact. All of these advantages make pen drives considerably more suitable for carrying personal data or work files from one place to another than traditional storage devices.
In spite of the fact that pen drives are of great convenience, there’s still a strong possibility that a whole host of users will encounter data loss. When you lend your device to a friend, he or she may click on the wrong button and delete your files by mistake, or you may wrongly wipe some of them absent-mindedly. There can also be times your files are erased during the transference to the computer resulting from the breakdown of the system, when the drive is formatted accidentally or is infected with serious viruses, and when there’s circuit failure, the first four of which are logical layer faults, while the last one is a problem with the hardware. Whatever case you’re in, you’ll go crazy if the lost files are of considerable importance to you, play a decisive role in whether you’ll be successful in doing business with a VIP customer, or if you can give a significant academic presentation on time. Consequently, there’s no doubt that you should seek help to retrieve your files as soon as possible.

Luckily, when a file is deleted either mistakenly or systematically, it’s not removed completely from the pen drive, which makes it possible to be restored. In effect, the erased data are simply inaccessible and the space occupied previously is marked as available. The file will remain in the drive until new data enter to cover the space and overwrite the deleted data. As a result, so as to prevent the wiped file from being overwritten and the space from being taken up, stop moving new files or downloading more ones to your drive is terribly needed. Otherwise, it’ll be too late to retrieve the lost file when occupied.
