Hello! There! I borrowed a USB thumb drive to transfer some school activity photos. But, its file system suddenly changed into RAW instead of FAT32 or NTFS last night. There were 0 bytes free and 0 bytes used. When I tried to format it, nothing happened. How could I change it back????? I am really afraid to be blamed by all of my students. What should I do????? Thanks in advance!

RAW format drive is really common. Don’t worry!
You could get back all your data as long as you take the right steps:
1. Connect your flash drive to your computer and never save any new data on it until you have recovered all your photos back.
2. Download a third-party recovery program to help you out. In my experience, you should try a RAW drive recovery freeware that has helped my friend recover his inaccessible photos, videos, music and files from his RAW hard drive. He thinks it is really efficient and worth trying.
3. Preview your recovered photos to ensure that every photo is recovered rightly.
4. Save your recovered photos on a different drive in case of recovery failure.
5. Run this freeware several times to make sure that all your photos are recovered.
