And, yesterday, since I really need more space to transfer some PC games, I deleted some of these reserved photos.

No Sure to Recover Everything after Delete or Shift Delete in All Cases

Just think you can take everything original back from your USB memory stick as long as your chosen thumb drive file recovery programs are effective enough? OK! It sounds that you really do not know about the data recovery technologies. Nearly all the data recovery utilities are designed to help people get deleted, shift deleted, lost, invisible, virus infected or missing files. But, they are not 100% sure that they can take all your lost data back all the time. Why? The data recovery results do not only rely on the efficiency of your applied data recovery tools. For example, when your photos and documents stored inside the Sony USB drive have already damaged or corrupted before you perform any deleting process there, you often do get no success to retrieve them all, no matter how perfectly the used software works there. And, when you do have used this USB flash drive to hold new computer videos, games and more information, the original photos and files may be already rewritten and corrupted. And the corrupted data often is not able to be retrieved back well. Of course, whether your storage device gets physical damages sometimes also affect the final data recovery results. Overall, always keep your device well after delete or shift delete and choose proper software to take the good ones back as possible as you can.
