How to Restore Lost Data with Original File Names
"Hey guys, can anyone of you give me a suggestion about how to select a data recovery software that can restore lost data with original file names? Recently, my USB drive suddenly became raw. I didn't take any operation on it.
Yesterday, I connected my USB drive to my computer, trying to copy a useful file to share with my colleague. But it turned out that my USB drive became raw. I could not access the files in it. What am I supposed to do?"
Mostly, when you lose a single file, it can be very easy to locate the lost file. But when you lost multiple files, you may want to use reliable EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard that supports to restore files with the original file name.
So how to find a reliable software and get rid of this issue? Here is something that you should know before finding the right solution.
Two Factors - Determining If the File Name Can Be Restored
You should know is that not all data recovery software can restore lost data with the original file name. The possibility of restoring lost file name is basically based on the two factors in the below.
1. The loss of file elements - Directory Info or Data Content
As you can see from the below image, a lost file includes two parts on storage devices - Directory Info (File Name, Time Stamp, Size Info, etc.) and Data Content. The Directory Info keeps the file information.
- When both Directory Info and Content are safe, you can directly restore lost files with the original file names.
- When both parts were damaged, you won't restore the files at all.
- If the Directory Info part gets lost or corrupted, the lost data can be restored. The recoverable files will be renamed like this: File001.doc, File002.xls, etc.
- If the Data Content area (content part) gets damaged, the file will be recovered but won't open.
2. Data loss causes
It doesn't matter if you know which part of the data content - Directory or Content is lost or damaged. All you need to know is how the files get lost - losing the whole partition or device gets formatted. The former the cause is listed, the bigger chance you'll have for restoring the original name of lost files:
- Partition loss
- Device becomes RAW
- File deletion
- Device formatting
