It was launched by Microsoft and supported by most music players. We tend to keep our music files (WMA, MP3, AAC, etc) on memory card, USB or external hard drive. But things are unpredictable, files can be permanently lost if something goes wrong with the device.

And you may accidentally delete files or format memory card without any backup. It’s a situation that puts us into a state of panic, but it may be possible to recover deleted WMA files.
