When your USB is converted to RAW format, the system does not always display a RAW USB. Instead, you get a variety of notifications. When you receive an error notice requesting formatting while using a USB drive and inspect the drive's properties, you will discover that the type of file system is RAW.

You might try formatting your USB flash drive to gain access to it. However, before formatting the raw USB device, you can attempt to recover files. You should be able to recover all lost files from your RAW USB drive using a RAW drive recovery tool as long as fresh data has not overwritten the files on your USB flash drive.

When a USB device turns RAW, the data on it becomes unavailable. You cannot view and open files on your USB device, such as documents, images, emails, and others. To repair the RAW USB, you should first make a RAW USB drive recovery and then repair the RAW USB disk.

To keep your data safe, you need to make a RAW USB drive recovery before repairing the USB in RAW format. EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard is a professional data recovery software that fully supports RAW USB recovery. You may quickly retrieve all of the files from your inaccessible USB device with it.

When you have a RAW USB drive, you cannot just format it as your computer instructs. This will erase all existing contents on the RAW USB drive, and you may lose the ability to retrieve files from the RAW USB drive. Instead, you should recover files from the RAW USB drive and repair the faulty storage device. Furthermore, because you cannot recover files from the RAW USB drive on your own, you need to seek a third-party solution's assistance.

Faulty sectors on the device, a corrupted partition table, or a virus or malware assault can cause a RAW drive. Using a dependable RAW drive recovery solution, such as EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard, you may easily recover data from RAW partitions.

Use EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard to recover deleted or lost files easily and quickly.
