Protect Files Getting Lost Due To Delete On Pen Drive / Memory Card Using iBin

by Abhishek Bhatnagar on January 17, 2010



Windows hard disk have Recycle Bin to recover your files that you delete accidentally. Recycle Bin Works for Hard Disk drives but not for removable pen drives and memory cards. Imagine that you accidentally hit delete button for an important file on your pen drive or some precious pictures / music on your memory card for phone or camera. As there is no recycle bin provided for Pen-drives and Memory cards, this data gets permanently deleted.


Although there are tools which help you recover permanently deleted files if they have not been over-written, see tutorial – Recover Deleted Files and Folders On Memory Card or Hard Drive For FREE . But the chances of recovery using recovery tools are not 100 %.


Its better to be safe than sorry, so now you can install a small utility called iBin on your pen drive and use it as a Recycle Bin for your Pen drive. In this article I will review the free tool called iBin which can save you from mess of recovering accidentally deleted files using complex and costly data recovery methods and services.



iBin is a free tool for Windows and is very easy to use. You need to copy it on your pen drive / memory cards and run it there. After this it will stay in you system tray and will monitor any delete actions on the pen drive / memory cards.



Whenever you delete a file using delete button on keyboard or delete option on the right-click menu, the deleted file will move into iBin folder. Thus if you accidentally deleted a file, you will have an option to recover it as it is still lying in the iBin Folder. You can clean the iBin Folder later on using the iBin options.


iBin may save you from a lots of hassles and data loss.
