How to recover lost PPT's?

I have a Sandisk USB in which I had saved some important PPTs but now when I connect the SSD to my laptop,it does not show any files.
Probably I have lost the data.

Kindly suggest a good software to recover my lost PPT’s.

First if you have a Windows computer try running the CHKDSK command for the USB drive.  If that doesn’t help try the recovery apps shown in this posting:

Be careful trying random recover apps that say “free download” because that will be the only part of the app that is free.

BTW What is a PPT?

I guess the OP means PowerPoint files, with.ppt/.pptx as extension.


If you are looking for a quick way to resolve this issue, try a reliable Removable Media Data Recovery software to bring back your lost files.

It sounds like a case of data loss.

But don’t worry,a professional data recovery software is the solution .
I can’t vouch for any other product but Stellar Windows Data Recovery.

I have used the product in the past to recover lost excel files and the software restored 100% of the data.

I hope it works fine for you as well.

Did you buy the $59.99 version or the $79.99 version Casey77?

I also faced such scenarios just an hour before my presentation. Then at that time one of my friend recommended me a tool which works well for me. And, I hope this works well for you.

Well, in order to do so what you can do is try SysInfo Tools PPT Repair Tool v1.O

Was that the $49 version?  Does it tell you why the files were deleted or corrupted?  Did you try a CHKDSK command on the drive before buying the app?

Mark did you create the $49 Recovery Tool you keep pushing/recommending or are you a “marketing” employee?  Did you write the blog posting?
