How to Retrieve ASF Files?

“Hey guys, I have really messed up with my system and the files that were saved in the relevant storage media are gone. I had used my friend’s pen drive to transfer the ASF files into my system. Once I connected the pen drive, I got certain list of messages indicating that pen drive is infected with virus and hence entire contents of the drive were deleted. Is there a way to undo the deletion process and to get back my ASF files? Please suggest me any best application that can recover my deleted ASF files? Please help me in this issue. Thanks in advance!”

ASF as we know is an Advanced Streaming Format specification that mostly includes media file types which was developed by Microsoft Corporation. This specification can be used for streaming multimedia files like graphics, sound, video and animation. These file types can be saved on any storage media and accessed when desired; but at times, you may face some issues that lead to deletion or loss of ASF files from your system. Take a look at the below mentioned scenarios that give you major headache:

  • Accidental deletion of ASF files with the use of Shift + Delete keys causes permanent deletion of data
  • Presence of bad sectors on the hard drive may corrupt the drive thereby blocking access to the ASF files saved in the partition
  • Abrupt removal of external storage media when file sharing process is being carried out can cause loss of ASF files
  • ASF file loss may occur as a result of virus infection, which may damage the file system resulting in inaccessibility of ASF files

The best way to overcome the above mentioned data loss scenarios is to keep a secure backup of the important ASF files on separate storage media. If you have not maintained backup then make use of Yodot Photo Recovery tool that can perform the recovery process in a minimum amount of time.
