A lot of windows phones come with memory cards and they are great for expanding the internal storage. However, unlike internal storage their quality and life is not as good and some of them tend to die or corrupt them without giving you any sort of hint or warning. In such situations, you will need a nice and capable recovery software.
The one we recommend is EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard because it is feature rich and the same time, super easy to use as well. With this recovery software, you will be able to recover your lost or deleted files from the memory card in no time. To run it, you need a windows operating system. Supported ones are Windows 10, Windows 8.1, Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2008 and Server 2003. Supported file systems are FAT(FAT12, FAT16, FAT32), exFAT, NTFS, NTFS5, ext2, ext3, HFS+ and since windows phone makes use of FAT32 and supports NTFS, you will have no trouble using this program.
The application is really easy to use – download it form official EaseUS website and double click on setup to install it. Insert the memory card for which you want to do memory card recovery and start the application. Then choose the file types you want the software to search for. In this case, we selected ‘all file types’ since we wanted to restore all type of files.
Now since we are going to recover data from USB drive, select USB flash drive from list. Pressing the start button will commence the search process which will quickly scan the drive for easy to recover files and documents. Progress bar will show you how much files have been scanned. After that, you will be shown a list of all files that can be recovered.
One of the gems in this application is that you can preview the files you can recover which will help you in recovery process. If you could not find the files you were looking for, no need to worry as there is a special deep scan mode as well. This takes more time but is fully worth it if you could not find your file earlier.
Now press the recover button to recover all the deleted or lost files.
