Get Back Data from USB Memory Stick

Written by Lucy John on April 18, 2023

I captured plenty of images on my digital camera which uses 8 GB USB memory stick as its storage device. I connected that digicam via USB cable in order to share those pictures from the memory stick to my system, and then an error displayed stating that “You need to format the drive, before you can use it”. Since formatting the USB memory stick will result in loss of entire data present in it, I am afraid of clicking “Yes” option. Is it possible to retrieve data from USB memory stick?

One might encounter this kind of error messages when USB memory stick get corrupted due to overusage, continuously recording videos, capturing photos when the device is running on low battery, ejecting USB memory stick improperly from host device and many more. In above explained scenario, if user clicks on Yes option then complete USB memory stick data will go into ether. Otherwise the device will not allow user to access its contents. At that time users expect not to lose single file from USB memory stick, isn’t it?? If you are in such condition, then don’t worry, you can get back missing or deleted data from USB memory stick. Before knowing exact solution have a look on some other reasons for deleting or losing data from USB memory stick:
