We are bound to losing our files provided that we do share our peripherals like USB storage, External hard disk with other PC users or even sharing files in our memory cards to other devices through bluetooth. I will always tell my friends to please format my USB flash drive after use to avoid getting this trending malware they popularly call shortcut virus. This is disgusting because it turns your files and folder into shortcut fie extension (.lnk). It sometimes turn your files into an executable file (.exe). It also creates a folder called z which you cannot delete. You could actually lost your files by mistakenly formatting or deleting them or damaged SD card
It really works like Ebola virus. Assuming you went to print your work at a cyber cafe or printing press, unfortunately you had no earlier backup of your files. As soon as plug in your device, it all get corrupted. One of my friends recently called me, panting. His project work got corrupted from where he went to print it. No backup of them. Also, another one told me that he lost his images he recently took from a tour after sharing files with his laptop. Luckily for all of us, MiniTool Partition Wizard saved us our day.
MiniTool Partition Wizard Home Edition creates, deletes, aligns, moves, resizes, recovers, splits, joins, hides, copies, and converts partitions or entire disks. It can change drive letters, label partitions and volumes, edit properties, and check file systems. It does all that and more for free.
Note: The latest version of MiniTool Partition is 9.1 but version 8.1.1 is a lot easier and simpler. Also, Free edition of MiniTool Partition has a limited recovery of 1GB per operation. This means that you can only recover files of 1GB on a single recovery operation. If your files are more than 1GB, then mark the important ones first and save. Now come back again and perform another recovery or you could purchase the license for pro.
Your files have been recovered. Go to that destination or folder where you save the files and open them.
Done! You could help a friend by sharing this post. Thank you.
