Document Recovery USB Drive

USB drives are normally used as a device to transfer files from one system to another. They are portable due to their small size & can be connected to any device that have a USB port in it. But due to this kind of frequent use of USB drives in different devices, they are likely to get corrupted & the data inside them might get deleted. Consider a scenario, you are working on an important Word document that you have to submit or present it on the next day. You copied it to your pen drive & went to sleep. The next day when you plugged it in your office system to recheck the contents, you find that the file is missing. This seems like a nightmare because no one can afford a situation like this. Later you realized that the pen drive was not properly removed from the system & you closed it.



This kind of situation has have happened to almost everyone. The best option is to take regular backups, but there are situations when you don’t have a chance to take backup. In those situations, a Word Document Recovery tool comes into picture. Some of the commonly occurring deletion / loss scenarios are listed below –

  • Accidental deletion of Word files from the USB drive while deleting some of the unwanted files.
  • Intentionally removing unused files to make space for other files & later realizing their importance.
  • Word docs lost due to deletion of files from a USB drive using Delete button, which does not go to the Recycle Bin like the files deleted form the system’s internal hard drive do.
  • Formatting the USB drive to get rid of a malware infection might leave you at a total data loss state, as formatting removes each & every bit of data from a drive that is being formatted.
  • Improper ejection of the USB drive from a system while transferring files or while accessing some data.
  • When the USB drive connected to an infected system or a virus infected file or software is saved to it, there are chances of data getting lost.
