Question: Is there any secure tool that can restore my precious photos off formatted external usb flash drive? The data loss happened when my computer got weird performance and my external flash drive was recognized as not formatted drive. Then I accidentally formatted the external flash and then realized the photos got erased. I unplugged the flash drive from my computer safely and now I am searching some tool or pro who can help. I don't want to turn the stuff to the recovery service center since they required more than 600 US dollars for a recovery. Can I use some recovery tool to do a DIY photo restore?

"My large external hard drive stored all my backup files with true image, however things got weird with my PC and all the backup plan did not work very well and so did it to my external flash drive. It is a 32GB USB flash drive that I moved all my photos from my canon digital camera to the flash drive for a storage. It is my habit to get precious data a backup. When my PC got wired performance after using some registry defragger, it became worse and worse. When I connect the usb flash drive to my PC for a new batch of photo storage, the bad PC did not recognize it and reported not formatted. I accidentally clicked "Yes" to format the flash drive and then all previous photos got erased. I wish to make a photo recovery from the formatted flash drive."
