Drive not formatted, do yo want to format it now?

Ever inserted your pen drive into a computer and get the message "drive not formatted. do you want to format it now?". 

Well, you probably did (that's why you are reading this). the file system on your drive is raw. 

Windows will not read from it until you format it. sorry. but there is a way you can recover the data on the drive before you format it. software are available for recovery of data from raw drives. 

One such software is easeus recovery and another is minitool power data recovery. Google it for more options. 

Recover the data to a different drive and copy them back after formatting your pen drive. 

Check for errors on the pen drive and always use the safely remove option.
