Re: thumb drive recovery
I ran into this problem recently. If the drive is formatted fat, fat32 or ntfs you can recover the data using Easy Recovery from http://www.ontrack.com/

has anyone seen a tool to recover the info left on a thumb drive after it has been deleted? At first i assumed that i could simply mount it as a disk and recover using the normal tools but that does not seem to be the case. I assume that this is due to the memeroy being used in them. Does anybody know if it is simply volatile memory with a battery or if is an actual hard disc or what. I did some googling but turn up very little that is useful.
Software was pricey but the data was worth it. Also, I've found many other uses since.
PS...I know they make a Windows version, not sure if they make a Linux version.
