5 Why is pen drive recovery possible?

Yes! You can recover data from pen drive easily. As a matter of fact, lost files are still somewhere on your pen drive but inaccessible, no matter if you delete, format or have lost them due to other reasons. Marked as reusable, the space that is occupied by lost files tells the system that it can be made used to save new data. Therefore, if you haven't written new data to it, you are able to recover the lost files, because they would still be there.

Keep in mind: If you have lost vital files from your pen drive, do not save any more data to your pen drive to avoid the lost files being overwritten.
