Extra Tip: PNY Repair Tool

When you lose files from a PNY storage device, you need data recovery software. While if your device gets corrupted, you will need a PNY SD card/USB repair tool. Being different from recovery software, PNY repair software works to repair device corruptions, including:

  • Partition becomes RAW
  • Drive is inaccessible
  • USB won't open
  • SD card shows the wrong capacity

That's why a format tool can also serve the function of a repair utility in some cases. For more details, go to download the free USB repair tool and recover data. Some repair software will erase all the existing files on the target device, like JetFlash Online Recovery. Thus, it's advisable for you to recover data from the corrupted device first if possible. 

The Bottom Line

The PNY recovery software - EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard provides reliable solutions to data loss in different kinds of situations.  As long as the lost files are not overwritten by new content and your device is not physically damaged, it will recover all the data for you. 

Although data recovery software helps to recover lost data successfully in most of the cases, it's more important to back up precious files to prevent the loss of data. Making a backup elsewhere is the most effective way to eliminate the possibility of complete data loss. To prevent it from happening, it's time to back up your precious files, either via copy and paste, free backup software, or cloud storage services.

2. Why cannot I recover 2GB data for free?

It is recommended to check the version installed is Free or Trial because they are different versions.

Trial has data preview function but cannot save any files, while the Free version enables to recover 2 GB files. The default free space is 500 MB and you may share the product on social media to get another 1.5 GB.

3. Why cannot the recovered files be opened?

A file is saved as 2 parts on the storage device: directory info (which is comprised by file name, time stamp and size info, etc.) and data content.

If the files with original file names and folder structures cannot be opened, one possible reason is the corrupted directory info. There is still a chance to recover the data content with the RAW Recovery method in our software.

4. Why isn't it suggested to recover the files back to the original drive?

The storage structure of the lost files would be altered or damaged by any changes on the drive. If you save the recovered files back to the same drive, the original data structures and data content would be corrupted or overwritten, which causes permanent data loss. So you should prepare another disk to save the files.

5. How can I check whether my data is recoverable or not before purchase?

The Free version helps you save 2GB files to better verify the recovery quality of our product before purchase.

6. How long does it take to scan the drive?

It strongly depends on the capacity of your hard drive and the performance of your computer. As reference,most drive recoveries can be completed in around 10 to 12 hours for a 1-TB healthy hard drive in general conditions.
