Recover Memory Stick Files

Recently my friend Maxy unintentionally formatted his 4GB memory stick from his camera which had all his convocation photographs, video clips of his friends and families. Apart from videos and pictures he even had his music collection on the memory stick. So now he is wondering, “How to recover memory stick files”?

The answer to the above question is definitely yes. Because your memory stick is similar to a hard disk drive i.e. when you delete files from your memory stick, the camera marks the files as deleted and makes the space available, whereas the file still remains on the device.  So as long as you don’t save any new files to the memory stick, recovery is very much possible.

A Memory stick is a removable flash storage device which is used to store data on all kinds of portable devices such as Sony cameras, PSPs, digital audio player, mobile phones and many more devices. These devices are an easy way to store data on, but unfortunately these devices are prone to corruption like any other device. In order to use these corrupted memory sticks you must format it. Once formatted, you can recover the data from these devices using a photo recovery software.

Some of the common reasons for memory stick data loss  include accidental deletion of a file from memory stick, power failure while transferring data from memory stick to PC, virus infection on the memory stick, formatting the memory stick intentionally or unintentionally and using the same memory stick on different devices.
