Removable storage devices have greatly contributed to data portability as they are small, light and capable of storing large amounts of information. However, they are not exempt from situations that may cause data loss. In fact, there is a long list of reasons why your data may be damaged. These include corrupted file system, accidental or intentional file deletion, power failure during data transfer, malware infections, hardware malfunction and operating system crashes.
In the context of so many threats to the data you store in your USB device, Recovery Toolbox for Flash is designed to help you restore lost data. This application could not have been made easier to use. A wizard will guide through all the steps of the recovery process, and the first will be to select the source drive. The second step will ask you to provide the location where the recovered files are to be saved. In this respect, the target folder cannot be located in the source drive. After this, the program will automatically start to scan the source drive and then provide you with a list of the found files, from which you can select those you want to recover. Finally, you can proceed to actually restore the selected files.
The descriptions of most file recovery applications boast about their capability to recover data from some popular media formats. In fact, this is just publicity to attract more customers, not because it is not true but because all these applications can actually restore any kind of file. For them, any file is just binary data. And Recovery Toolbox for Flash is not an exception. In addition, it supports FAT file systems.
In general, even if you have not lost any data from your removable drive, it is a good thing to be cautious and have a file recovery application at hand. If you want to be sure which one to use, you had better try some of them and take your choice. Remember not to base your decision solely on the appearance because the real power is hidden in the code.
