SanDisk is a world-renowned company that produces many products. The most popular ones are SanDisk USB devices, SanDisk memory cards and SanDisk external hard drives. All these devices can be used to save data that means a lot for you. Taking pictures of memorable moments is the best way to keep those moments alive. Pictures might have been captured using a digital camera or a Smartphone and saved on the memory card used in them. The photos then can also be transferred to a laptop or desktop. The pictures can be saved on a USB flash drive & transferred from one device to another.

Let it be any device, but your pictures & other data, are not safe anywhere. Like other storage devices, SanDisk USB drives also are prone to data loss situations. There are many reasons for the loss of your important files like accidental deletion, unintentional formatting, file system corruption, improper system shutdown, abrupt removal of the USB drive from the system, virus infection, interrupted transfer process, software malfunctioning or hard disk crash. Among these, formatting is the most devastating situation which leads to the complete data loss. If you have also lost your crucial data under any of these scenarios then you might be thinking that the files are lost forever. But that is not the truth. By using a recovery tool like Formatted USB Recovery, all the data can be easily retrieved.

Why deleted/lost pictures can be recovered?

When you remove a file from your system, the operating system just erases the pointers to that file and its entry from the directory structure. The original file is not erased therefore by using an efficient recovery tool like SanDisk Data Recovery, the files can be easily restored. The only thing you should be careful of is that the device from which the files are removed, should not be used any more i.e. no new files should be saved on it. This is because if the formatted files get overwritten by new files, then there is no chance of recovery. You will lose them permanently.

Formatting can be –

  1. Accidental – Accidental formatting might occur while the user is trying to eject the drive from a computer system or while renaming it. The results are very destructing as the user doesn’t get the chance of taking a backup. You might also format the USB drive using the Quick Format option. To recover USB drive data after a quick format, this tool will prove to be very useful.
  2. Intentional – In intentional formatting, the user format the USB drive either to make space for new files or to get rid of a virus. In this type, usually he/she might have taken a backup but if the format is due to a virus then the results will be the same as the accidental format. When a USB drive gets infected by a virus then you will not be able to access it until it is formatted.
