If we wanted to recover data from a memory card, from a memory card (SD or microSD) or from a USB stick?

In this guide we will see the best tools and programs to be used to recover files from a USB stick or memory card .

Using these programs we can, for example, recover photos deleted by mistake from a memory card of a camera or the precious documents stored in a USB stick or from an external hard drive formatted or deleted by mistake, so as to get back the files before they are lost forever (the more we reuse the key after formatting, the less chance we have of recovering all the data).

How to recover deleted files and photos from memory card and USB sticks

We have tested only the best programs to recover any type of file deleted by mistake, we will not have to do anything but try them all with the key or the memory card inserted inside the PC. 

1) PhotoRec: One of the best programs to recover files from USB sticks, memory cards, memory cards but also CD DVDs and hard drives is PhotoRec .

It looks like an excellent recovery software that allows you to read and see the photos lost not onlyfrom any photographic memory medium but also from USB keys, hard disks, CDs and DVDs . PhotoRec is installed on all operating systems, is open source and is very easy to use.

To use the program simply select the disk or memory card among those available within the program, indicate the type of file system and the method of recovery of the files, then indicate a folder where to recover the files deleted from the program ( Browse button ) and when we are ready click on Search .

It may take hours, depending on the size of the media to be recovered and the speed of reading, but in the end we will see the photos, images and documents saved in the indicated path.

This program works with any type of file: Office files, .doc .xls .ppt, video files like .avi .mp4, audio files .mp3 .wma and in particular .jpg, .png and .gif image files.

PhotoRec is able to operate on the memory card file system even when it is damaged, since it searches directly the header files of all the photo archive formats.

To use the program, simply start it and follow the steps of the wizard wizard: select the types of files to be recovered, the disk or removable memory from which to act and start the search (even in-depth to find more files).

We await the long search and at the end we will have all the files deleted and recoverable: those without damage are marked in green, while those reported in yellow, orange or red may no longer be recoverable.

We select the files to be recovered and save them on our PC.
