USB flash drive is widely used because of its small size, it can be put into pocket and can plug into any computer with a USB port, it is used primarily to exchange data between different computers.

Please note that:
1. If some files are not found by Deleted File Recovery, please click "Deep Scan" button to start the Deep Scan Recovery process, deep scan takes more time, but can find much more lost files.
2. If the device you want to recovery data from is encrypted by BitLocker Drive Encryption, you should try BitLocker Data Recovery.
3. Don't save recovered data to the device where data loss appears, for it may overwrite lost data.
