How to recover data from USB stick? Here are the best free software

by Data Recovery Uae Data Recovery Services

USB flash drives are among the most common storage media due to their small size and the ever increasing storage capacity in the latest models. These are used to store files and documents, they have in fact replaced the old cd and dvd supports thanks to their ease of use. In short, using a pendrive has many advantages.

One of the features that has contributed most to the spread of these USB keys is the ability to delete, overwrite and rewrite very many data. Just a few simple clicks are all it takes to delete files and documents from a USB stick. This argument is not valid, however, for old media such as CDs and DVDs, which had to be necessarily rewritable, required additional software for writing and had a more limited duration.

Not all that glitters is gold: despite the practicality of these supports, unfortunately for you, with USB pendrive it is easier to lose data. For example, data can be deleted by mistake and, to recover data from a USB stick as soon as possible, you will have to go back to some data recovery software that is also available online in a free version. The most common are Recuva and EaseUS.

# 1 Software to recover deleted files from USB: Recuva

Recuva is a free software that you can download from this link . Once the installation has started, the program asks you to install other recommended software but, if you have little time available, we recommend that you disable these options. Once installed Recuva shows a very convenient tutorial that helps you to take the first steps to Recover data from your USB stick.


First select the type of file you want to recover, for example images, videos, emails, photos, contacts. Alternatively, to save time, you can select "All files". In the second step the software asks you to indicate the path where the USB stick is located, then you will just need to select the unit you have connected to retrieve data from the USB stick .

It is also possible to activate the advanced USB data recovery option, in this way the support is analyzed in depth and all the files that have been deleted or removed are searched for more precisely. This second option is much slower than the first, so it is advisable to activate it only after trying to do a quick analysis of the USB support.

Once the Recuva process is executed it shows a list containing all the files that can be recovered. Some of these are marked with yellow, to indicate that the file may be corrupt and therefore not usable. Once you have selected the files you need, you simply need to indicate to the software the folder in which they will be saved and proceed with the recovery.

# 2 Software to recover deleted files from USB: EaseUS

In the event that Recuva has failed to recover data from a USB stick , you can try downloading another software called EaseUS Data Recovery. This program is available for both Windows and MAC, and you can download it for free here or buy it in the paid pro version.


In its free version, this software allows you to recover files up to a maximum of 2GB. To work around this limitation you will need to purchase the paid version. However, even just to take a test, we always recommend at least one attempt with the free version of EaseUS Data Recovery.

 The installation is very fast and, once the software is opened, you simply have to indicate the type of file you want to recover. Subsequently it is sufficient to indicate the path on the computer to which the flash drive has been connected and proceed with the search for the data to be recovered.


The procedure could last a few minutes depending on the size of the pendrive and, once the analysis has been performed, a filelist of the recoverable data will be returned. Here too it will be necessary to indicate the path where to save the recovered files and proceed with data recovery from USB stick .
