EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Download Instruction:
Let's read one case before we start to discuss our topic RAW USB drive recovery.
"I have a USB flash drive which has data on it but when I plug it in, a prompt appears asking to format the drive. I need to recover the data from this USB. It is approximately 500MB, and the USB shows as a RAW file system. Does anyone know how I can recover my data?"
As we know, when we use some USB drives such as USB external hard disk, USB memory card, USB smart media or other storage media, we may encounter the following situation(s).
Invalid media type reading drive. Abort, Retry, Fail?
File system is displayed as "RAW".
Windows may show "disk not formatted. Do you want to format now?"
File names contain "weird" characters.
"Sector not found" messages.
The reason for the above situations is that the partition of the USB drive is corrupt or damaged under Windows environment, that is why the guy raises the question in the data recovery forum, and the following is the most usual symptom.
When we happen to meet one of those problems while using a USB drive, we cannot access and open files such as documents, photos, emails, etc. If we check the property of the drive, it shows that file system is RAW.
When we search for a method for RAW USB drive recovery, we can't just perform format directly as we are asked, because it will result in overwrite or damage to the files in the data area of the RAW USB drive, and we will lose chance to recover files from the RAW USB drive. What we should do is to recover the files from RAW USB drive first before we perform format for RAW USB drive recovery.
Under Windows environment, we cannot recover files from RAW USB drive by hand, we should seek assistance from a third tool. Now what we need is data recovery software for RAW USB drive recovery, here EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard is recommended.
