My Encrypted Drive Formatted , How Can I Recover My Data
  

I have a pen drive which I had encrypted with Bitlocker. I had kept the key in a text files inside usb. Now I had use this in a different computer which was infected with virus. Then I connected to my pc and it prompt me to format the disc. Accidentally I formatted that. I lost my all data and the drive is no empty. Can anyone help me to get my data back from the usb. Thanks.

Have you taken the backup of the same. If yes then you can restore that back again and it becomes possible to get your data back. There are some online service which offers you option to retrieve your data. Try to contact them if the data is very much important. There is tool for that called as Recuva. It can all files emptied from the Recycle Bin the images and other files accidentally deleted from the memory card or usb.

It is better if you go for the portable version of Recuva. This version is portable on a USB stick or other removable media. A single click can recover all your files. It is necessary that you maintain regular backup of your device. Small addition, when scanning your disk, the program informs you of the status of files and indicates whether the clusters have been rewritten.

Normally there are some good tools for this but the working cannot be sured. I had used once Smart Data Recovery tool. Smart Data Recovery is a utility designed to recover data that would be a shame not to try before sending your drive to a specialist. It supports fully file systems FAT and NTFS and allows restoring data from hard drives, digital cameras, USB drives, various memory cards and diskettes.

If your USB stick has been deleted or the file system of your USB flash drive has been damaged, it is quite possible to restore your data, or by software to save. A free and recommended software is PCInspector. With PCInspector you can restore your USB stick to save data. This tool is widely used and it is reliable also. At the very first I will recommend you to download and run this tool.

Re: My Encrypted Drive Formatted , How Can I Recover My Data

Usb drives are using MOS transistors. If you deletes data this is in contrast to hard disks so that all the transistors are switched on to pass through. For hard drives, however, only the memory address is released in the index table and therefore the data is not deleted. So there are quiet a few chances to get your data back. But most of the time you can give a try.

There are tons of software for this but it is not sure that most of them will work. I am using Getdataback a simple tool that work on FAT drives for data recovery. This can scan your usb drive and provide you with the data which is stored in the system. Try PC inspector for that. It yet another powerful and widely used tool. Connect your usb and run the scan with it.
