Like others on this discussion, I lost all my USB files as I switch between three computers for work, not to mention how many times I have let my employees take it with them for travel. We got a virus on our files and this software helped my company get back important documents. Thank you to the developers of this software!

Have you tried Raw Recovery mode? Besides, if you have put many new files into your USB drive, the lost files can probably be overwritten too.

Dear STR831, As long as your USB drive can still be recognized as a drive by system, you can download a trial version of iSkysoft Data Recovery for Mac to have a try. If the program shows your drive, you will be very lucky to retrieve data from the drive.

Hi, This sounds like a pretty useful program - my question is if the USB is not showing at all (at present my USB is only showing in 'System Information' but not in 'Disk Utility' or 'Finder') will I still be able to use the program to recover? I operate on both Mac and PC and according to the Windows PC my USB now has 0 bytes used space and 0 bytes free space. The original capacity of my USB was 32GB (a Kingston Datatraveler 111) with at least 4-5GB worth of files/documents that are quite important.
