How to Recover Deleted Files from a USB Drive

A USB flash drive is great for storing and transferring our information, including precious photographs and documents, from one device to another. Yet, sometimes the USB drive may be faulty or corrupted, or we may accidentally delete files from flash drives causing us to lose important data that sometimes can’t easily be replaced. This can be a devastating experience and we’ve all been there at some point.

Flash Drive Photo Now includes Photo SmartScan for enhanced photo recovery.

The first thing we tend to do is to panic and wonder where the files deleted from the USB flash could have gone. Would we be able to find or undelete these files and if we do manage to find them, would be able to restore previous versions of the files? These are the questions we seek to answer.

Looking for solutions online is usually not a good move as more often than not, you’ll end up having to sift through thousands of outdated posts to try to find anything helpful. Free USB recovery software will only get you so far and could even be a security risk, so it’s better not to go down this route.

The long and short of it is, you can retrieve deleted files from USB flash drives, but you’ll need to use high-quality USB data recovery tools. A data recovery tool is a computer program used to recover permanently deleted files. These tools scan your USB drive using an efficient algorithm and recover deleted files and folders on your USB drive.

This is where FileRestorePlus comes to the rescue! You can retrieve, backup and restore your lost data, whether in the form of photos, videos, documents or music from the USB flash with FileRestorePlus!

Why is it possible to reinstate your recovered files from a USB drive?

You may wonder how the recovery of files from a USB drive is even possible and why the files are not lost forever.

The simple explanation is that software doesn’t immediately get rid of the files when they are deleted, but simply marks the available space for reuse. If nothing else needs the space in the interim, the data is still there and the file can be recovered.

This is true even if you can't see or find the files when you search for them. The file is, in fact, still there and can be recovered from the USB storage device.

What this also means, is that sensitive data on your USB stick or drive is vulnerable and can potentially be accessed by others, who may use your information in unethical ways, so it’s best to ensure your data doesn’t end up in the wrong hands.

I just downloaded your software after accidentally deleting about 10 videos off my camera memory card. FileRestorePlus restored all of them and worked great. Thank you!

I just wanted to send you a BIG thank-you. I had just spent 20 hours scanning hundreds of old 35mm slides of the family going back to the 1970s. I decided to delete the scanning software once the task was completed and uninstalled it. All the contents, including scanned slides, were immediately deleted. I was in a total panic. I downloaded FileRestorePlus and in one hour everything was recovered. Fantastic sofware… Many thanks!
