Data recovery from portable storage media
With the ability to store quite a large amount of digital information, high-speed performance, great efficiency, excellent space-saving features and installation simplicity, portable storage media have gained considerable popularity. Unfortunately, despite constantly improving reliability, these devices are still exposed to data loss. Improper plug-in or removal of the device, power cuts as well as accidental file deletion may lead to the loss of valuable information stored on the medium. Contrary to the popular belief, lost data doesn’t disappear for good unless it is overwritten. Thus, it's strongly recommended to stop using the device as soon as a data loss problem is detected. Further on, a proper data recovery software utility will help to restore missing files.
For recovery of files lost from portable storage media, SysDev Laboratories offers UFS Explorer as comprehensive and universal software.
Download, install and launch UFS Explorer.
Connect the portable storage you have lost data from to a PC with the installed UFS Explorer.
Choose the connected storage for scanning in the list of the application.
Press Recover to start scanning. Specify general scan parameters if needed and press Start.
After the scanning process is over, browse through the found files and folders, choose the needed ones and save them to a secure storage.
Note: never save the recovered data to the storage you lost it from, this can lead to irreversible data loss.
