FonePaw Data Recovery Update: Better Support for RAW Drive & exFAT

By FonePaw | Dec 31 , 2019

When trying to open a flash drive or memory card on a Windows computer, you may sometimes get an error that says "you need to format the disk before you can use it", which stops you from opening the drive and accessing your files. This indicates the flash drive or hard drive has become raw. And how to recover files from a RAW hard drive or flash drive before formatting is a dilemma that many users are facing.


Raw Drive Error


FonePaw Data Recovery's new update, the 1.7.0 version, can get you out of the dilemma. The 1.7.0 version of FonePaw Data Recovery (Windows) can safely extract all data from a raw hard drive, memory card, flash drive or a raw partition. After performing a raw drive recovery with FonePaw, you can then format the drive to fix the problem without worrying about losing important files.

Recovering files from raw drive with FonePaw is very easy. Just keep your memory device with raw file system connected to the computer, then launch FonePaw Data Recovery, and the raw drive will show up under the Removable Drives area. Since it is a raw drive, it shows zero B used. Just select the raw drive and click Scan. All the photos, documents, videos, etc. on the raw drive will be scanned out. Click Recover to save them on your computer.

Besides raw hard drive, you can also use FonePaw Data Recovery to get files back from formatted drive, corrupted drive, and inaccessible drive.
