How can I recover files from a formatted USB?Watch
I really need to recover the files. So if anyone knows a really good (free) program that recover files from a FORMATTED USB not one that were deleted, then I would VERY n=much appreciate it!!
Some of the best software out there is FOSS/Freeware. About 95% of the tools I use professionally are custom written or FOSS. Recuva comes highly recommended by myself (I'm a data recovery and forensics analyst) as well as a large number of regular contributors to the TSR Tech forum.
USBs tend to be flash-based rather than disk-based (it's a case of SSD vs HDD).
Formatting, or even deleting, from flash memory tends to completely destroy the data: rather than the normal scrambling that a hard disk does. Depending on the original filesystem installed your data is highly likely to have been lost permanently.
