The free data recovery software allows you to recover 2GB of files at no cost. It's enough for most of the MP3 recovery cases. If you have more than 2GB of music files to recover, you will need to upgrade the free version to the pro version.

How to Prevent the Data Loss of MP3 Files

The best way to avoid complete loss of any files is to back them up somewhere else. Speaking of backup, you can manually copy the MP3 files from one place to another, use free backup software, or sync them to cloud storage. Whether you want to back up music files or other content, these three ways are universal. If you don't have too many files, manually copying files could help. If you have a bulk of files and look for a time-saving way, apply the professional data backup software instead. While if you have a stable and fast network connection and large enough cloud storage, you can choose to back up the MP3 files to the cloud.

The Bottom Line

The only precondition for success MP3 recovery is that the lost music files are not overwritten by new content. Thus I'd like to stress that stop using the device where you have lost the MP3 files since merely listening to music may also cause data overwriting. Hope you can recover the deleted or lost MP3 files successfully with EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard.

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

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.
