Why is pen drive recovery possible?

Yes! You can recover data from pen drive easily. As a matter of fact, lost files are still somewhere on your pen drive but inaccessible, no matter you delete, format or lost them due to other reasons. Marked as reusable, the space that is occupied by lost files tells the system that it's can be made use of to save new data. Therefore, if you haven't written new data in it, you are able to recover the lost files, because they would be still there.

Keep in mind: If you lost vital files from your pen drive, do not save any more data to your pen drive to avoid the lost files being overwritten.

No, definitely not. The data recovered will be saved on your computer or an external hard drive. This program doesn't collect any of your data.
