I accidentally formatted my usb flash memory and lost all the files i kept in it.
i have tried some data recovery software but am not getting my files back.
how can i go about it to recover my files?
Do not know whether it is proper here to share my experiences. Honestly, recently, I did also get the similar Seagate hard drive format data loss troubles and also had tried some free data recovery software online. But, fortunately, I did get some successes with them, like:
Recuva- free and fast to recover my data, but, many retrieved files were not opened well
iCare Data Recovery Free – 100% free and take most of my original music and files back
TestDisk – free and its DOS-like windows is tricky for me
PC Inspector – free and useful
Overall, hope my experiences also help anyone there.
