Windows 7: Any softwares to recover files from booted USB?

Any softwares to recover files from booted USB?

Hey guys! today i just used my dad's USB to boot SeaTools to scan for my PC (BSOD Issue).
I didnt realize that booting a program would cause it to change function and delete the files. Is there any program i can use to retrieve the old files with its name and folders and can i change it into normal storage data (USB size is 16GB)?

It doesn't....when you installed SeaTools you probably formatted the USB drive, thereby removing the files on it.

Try Recuva to see if anything is recoverable.

One software that I have confirmed to work was EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Free. I successfully recovered a file my friend accidentally deleted from her USB flashdrive using this program. The free edition limits to 2GB of recovery only though. How much data did you lose?
