EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard for Mac 11.8...
As portable applications users, we really value our thumb drive. But there are times when we have no other options but to format it. Most frequent reason would be virus.
   I usually have a "twin thumb drive" that clone the whole content of the other. So, whenever I have to format it, I can always restore the contents from the "twin." I also have "the third twin" content backup on my hard drive.
   But sometimes, we need to recover some documents, photos, or videos we've downloaded to the thumb drive we've just formatted. Unlike formatted hard drive, formatted thumb drive tends to be more difficult to recover.
   We will review one of such handy data recovery utility called EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard for Mac. This utility can help most of your Mac data recovery needs and it supports macOS 10.14 (Mojave) or Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) and up.

   But first, let's check out some tips on how to use thumb drives for a longer lifetime:
  1. Make backup or "twin clones" of your thumb drive from time to time in case your thumb drive gets accidentally formatted, infected, or just plain busted.
  2. Safely remove your thumb drive after using it. To do this on Mac, look up the device in Finder, then click the "Eject" button next to the device.
  3. Safely remove thumb drive...
  4. Format your thumb drive from time to time to fix any file system errors that can rise up unexpectedly.
   Yes, it's better if we always have backups and backups. But there are times when we're just too lazy or forgot to do that but then disaster strikes.... Then, this is where a free recovery utility comes in handy, right? Just follow the step-by-step tutorial and hope you'll get your files back. You can do it!

   Once EASEUS DRW has completely located your lost files it'll display them using their full file names (even if the drive has been deleted). If the list is lengthy, you can search by name to find whatever you need, or double-click to check that you've got the right file (plain text, hex and image file viewers are available).
   We can select individual file to recover from the right pane or select the whole path to recover from the left pane; then just click Recover Now button to recover them,
