SSD Data Recovery
SSDs are becoming more and more popular and we can recover data from almost all brands of Solid State Drives. Whether important documents or pictures have been accidentally deleted, formatted or the Solid State Drive is malfunctioning and not recognized by your computer. The majority of SSD failures are due to a malfunctioning internal controller or electronic damage to the circuit board. In most cases data recovery software will be unable to recover any data due to the physical failure of the SSD itself and its components. Our proprietary techniques allow us to extract your data directly from the NAND memory chips and thereby recover your data with a high success rate. We have successfully recovered financial documents, movies, and photo collections for photographers, students and teachers, and even law enforcement.
Data Analyzers can successfully recover data from all common Solid State Drives (SSD) including the following manufacturers and models: Adata, Corsair, Crucial, Fusion I/O, Intel, Kingston, Patriot, Plextor, OCZ, SanDisk, SandForce, STEC, Texas Memory Systems, Violin Memory as well as rebranded/OEM SSD.
WHAT ACTUALLY IS A SOLID STATE DRIVE (SSD) AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
Solid state drives have been around in one form or another since the 50s but didn’t enter the consumer market until the early 90s when M-Systems introduced the first SSD. SSDs are a direct replacement to Electromagnetic hard disk drives.
There are no moving parts in SSD making them lighter, more power efficient and more shock resistant than their counterparts. They are also very similar to SD cards as they share many of the same general components and store data the same way.
They usually consist of an electronic board (PCB) with several SMD components mounted to the board. The most important of these components are the NAND chip(s) and the controller chip. The NAND chip is where your data actually resides in digital form (ones and zeros). The controller chip can be considered the brain of the SSD and is in control of accessing and transferring data to and from the NAND chip.
To further understand the complexity of data recovery from SSD and other NAND storage technologies it is vital to understand that the controller chips use complex algorithms to store your data on the actual NAND chip. A vast variety of storage controllers and an even greater variety of possible configurations exist, which can further complicate the recovery process.
Therefore to obtain the greatest possible success rate, we highly recommend seeking out trained and experienced Flash Recovery Experts for the salvaging of your data.
