Memory Stick Recovery

I captured a lot of pictures on my Sony digital camera which uses memory stick as its storage device. I connected the camera via USB in order to transfer those photos from the memory stick to computer, then an error message popped up saying, “You need to format the disk in drive D: before you can use it”. Since formatting the memory stick will result in complete data loss. Is recovery of data from memory stick possible?

When you encounter the above situation, all the data from the memory stick will be lost. But all hope is not lost you can still get back those data using an efficient photo recovery software which is safe and reliable.

When you perform any delete operation, the system won’t necessarily erase the file permanently. The files you lost still remains on the memory stick but the file is marked as deleted and the space can be used by any new data. When you add any new files such as photos or videos, it occupies the place where your deleted files were stored. If the data is overwritten by any new file, it’s almost impossible to recover data from your memory stick. For this reason you must store your memory stick in a safe place after any data loss situation.

Main Reasons for data loss on memory stick are:

  • Unexpectedly formatting the memory stick from the device or when attached to computer
  • Accidentally erasing pictures and other files from the memory stick
  • Ejecting the memory stick improperly while copying process
  • Corruption to the file system of the memory stick due to virus infection
