Media storage devices such as memory cards, USB thumb drives, hybrid hard disk drives, and solid state drives all work on flash based technology. This technology is lightweight, portable, and very convenient for today's on-the-go culture. However, like any electronic media, and due to their small size and frequent use, flash drives are especially vulnerable to failure. Our innovative team has years of experience recovering data from all flash based products including: camera memory cards, solid state drives (SSD), USB thumb drives, and more.
Logical failure occurs when the flash media is accidentally formatted or deleted. Data recovery from physically damaged hard drives may involve modifying or replacing damaged components, which we do using specialized hardware and software tools. ReStoring Data performs all recoveries using the industry's most cutting edge proprietary equipment in our fully equipped data recovery laboratory. Should a physically damaged hard drive needs opening, we will operate on it in a certified Class-100 clean room environment. This dust-free environment ensures there are no contaminants that might cause permanent physical destruction of your data during recovery.
Physical failure on flash based products can be caused by a variety of different reasons. Most commonly it is the result of normal deterioration of the memory chips or other electrical components. It is often an electrical error which produces a physical failure, spreading from the camera, USB port, or card reader, to the flash drive. In each of these circumstances, it is imperative that you refrain from using your flash drive again to avoid any further damage, and again, to give us a better chance to recover your data.
