We rely a great deal on our hard drives and portable memory storage devices to keep our important files safe. No matter how many backups you make, however, it may some day happen that your Solid State Drive (SSD) device reports data loss due to damage or other unfortunate reasons.
The SSD, being solid state, by definition has no moving components. This type of device is extraordinarily durable and damage resistant, making the occurrences when data recovery is required – very rare. They simply fail much less often than HDD drives. The problem is that when they do fail and you have loss of data, the recovery process can be an extremely complex and difficult. SSD data recovery services have to be on the cutting edge of technological innovation and apply a specially tailored approach to each device, depending on brand, year, model and type of damage.
SSD devices and the equipment that uses them are a new and constantly developing technology and the recovery processes that are applied to this technology are also on a constant developing curve. We at Data Recovery Gurus have perfected our methods and skills and are able to salvage your valuable lost data from virtually every device available on today’s market.
The SSD Data Recovery Process
Similar to most cases of hard drive malfunctions, SSD data recovery is needed to reclaim and restore data loss from Logical or Physical SSD drive failures.
Logical Failures of SSD drives can occur, even though they are not a very common issue. Those errors that do happen usually stem from an electrical problem within the device, such as inconsistent power supply or power surge. In other cases, SSD recovery is required in the event of damage caused by virus / malware, or the user mistakenly deleting necessary files.
Physical Failure describes the case when the data is still in place, but the components that grant access to it are not. This is not so much data retrieval, as much as it is renewed data access and normally entails the physical restoration of a device to its usable condition. This requires the use of high level skills, state of the art technology and advanced analytical equipment.
Physical damage to a device that may require SSD data recovery may include:
- Compressing, dropping, denting or puncturing the device
- Exposing it to extreme temperatures, mostly heat (though cold can damage it as well)
- Exposing the device to water or humidity which damages the electronic circuitry / connectors
- Spilling beverages, food items, dirt, and other debris and contaminants on it
Choose Data Recovery Gurus
Physical hard drive repairs are the equivalent of a complicated surgery. The components of a Solid State Drive are miniature (or microscopic) are generally quite complex. The tools and equipment necessary to restore or recover data from an SSD are expensive and highly specialized – needing an expert to work them efficiently.
This means that you need a specialized data recovery center to do this job for you. One that hires only highly qualified technicians and keeps a program of constant ongoing training to keep the skills sharp and up-to-date.
When you have an SSD data loss case on your hands, what you need to do is:
- Set the device aside right away to avoid further damage
- Disconnect the device and power it down
- Call Data Recovery Gurus
Most data recovery projects will take no more than a few days, so call us now and get your valuable files back, safe and sound.
