A flash drive is a small storage device that can be used to transport files from one computer to another. They are small in size, but still these devices can store a large amount of data onto them. They can be easily carried from one place to another. You can keep one on a key chain, carry it around your neck, or attach it to your bag.

Flash drives or USB drives have made life simpler and better in many aspects. Almost all of you rely on them to store your important files as a backup on them. But with these positive aspects, there are some negatives also.

Let’s see what are the scenarios in which, your files might get deleted from USB drive –

  • Deletion due to virus attack – When a virus attacks your system, all the files inside the computer become exposed to it. In this case if you connect a USB drive to that system, files inside the drive also are not safe. This virus can delete your important files without your notice.
  • Accidental Deletion – While deleting a file or files, you may accidently select some other file that you never wished to. This is the most common scenario for data loss.
  • Deleting a file unknowingly – A file deleted using Delete button in the flash drive does not go to the Recycle Bin, unlike files deleted from an internal drive. You may think that it will be residing in Recycle Bin but it will not.
  • Files erased due a third party tool – Files can also get deleted due to a third-party software that has been used to manage the flash drive.
