    USB Flash file restore program

    Does anyone use a program that restores any files that were on a USB drive once it has been formatted? We are looking for a program that will restore anything, not just photos and preferably it needs to be free.

    You can treat USB sticks like any other FAT32 drive. Therefore any of the old Win9x 'undelete' era utilities will work.

    I use a program called R-Studio which i've been very impressed with. Restored no-end of files off memory sticks / floppy disks that gone corrupt and ask to be formatted. It's made us real life-savers at times.

    I know they have an emergency edition demo which will restore files less than 64KB.
