This is a tip explaining step by step how to recover deleted data, even if it is already deleted from your recycle bin. Before we start, you need to download the software required to complete this task.
After you have downloaded the software, Disc Digger, all you need to do is to double click on .exe file to run the software. The program will automatically start. Now, for this purpose, I will recover DATA from my Flash drive. Click HERE
to read step by step instructions a using a Flash drive.
I will copy some files to my flash drive, format the drive, then recover the Data I formatted. You need to remember that there will be more data recovered than the data I copied, because I have used this flash drive for a while, hence, the other deleted data will also be recovered.
So lets Start!!
For this purpose, I will copy a movie to my Flash drive, format my Flash drive and recover the movie.Here is what I did:
After I copied the movie and the format was done, I opened Disc Digger, chose the drive on which I want to recover from, and started the recovery. The pictures below will explain the steps I Followed.
To open the application, just click on the extracted icon.
Now, i chose my Flash drive as the drive which i want to recover from, and clicked next to proceed.
I chose the dig deeper option, as this option will recover formated files as well, not just deleted files.
At this point you need to choose what type of file you would want to recover, i chose all file types.
Recovery process in progress. My flash drive is 8 GB in size, the recovery took 5 minutes.
Once the recovery is done, you will receive a pop up, which will state that the recovery is done.
Remember, that once the scan is complete, you need to save the files you have recovered. You need to create a folder in which you want to save the file, I just created a Folder on my desktop. Unfortunately, the name does not recover with the file, so you will need to look through the files recovered and after you have saved the recovered file, you need t rename it.
This software can also be used to recover photos from your SD memory card. Al you need to have is a SD card reader, which plugs into your USB port.
