How often do you come across frenzy situations wherein you accidentally or intentionally deleted some of your important photos from a pen drive or any other storage device for that matter? Pretty often, to be precise. It is a common circumstance that people come across typically during accessing, moving or viewing files in a rush. Here, few of the most oftenly encountered scenarios have been gathered for you, go through them before proceeding to recover deleted photos from pen drive using Remo Recover.

Here are some known instances related to photos getting deleted on a USB pen / thumb drive:

  • You’re trying to move some photos or an entire folder from one platform to another and you inadvertently click on the Delete option
  • Assuming you’re getting rid of some redundant photos or a folder and without examining them, you delete them and tend to be apologetic at a later point of time looking for recovery
  • Executing  Command + Delete actions on a file assuming it to be a useless file or folder and mistakenly erasing the incorrect ones
  • Selecting all contents of a large folder by using Select all command in order to erase them but you do not realize that you have selected few important photos too and you eventually delete them

Under normal circumstances, all delete actions except Command + Delete action direct the deleted photos to Trash folder, allowing you to have an opportunity to restore / undelete them back at a later point of time, just in case. But in rare cases, the photos or any other deleted data in concern can bypass the Trash folder due to any reasons.

But when portable storage devices such as USB pen drives or thumb drives are concerned, as in if the photos that are deleted are from a pen drive then the deleted images get permanently removed from that drive without being moved to Trash. There’s a technical reason for the photos not to get moved to the Trash folder on a pen drive: the storage facility of flash memory devices such as pen drives is limited. Hence, there’s no any feature on them for maintaining a dedicated space such as Trash folder for storing temporary deleted photos.
