SSD hard drive stands for the phrase “Solid-State Drive” which is a solid state drive. SSDs function similarly to HDDs, but instead of being coated with a magnetic layer on the surface of the hard disk, the data stored on the flash memory chips combine and retain data even when the drive is not. power supply.
While SSDs have rightly earned their reputation for high-speed performance, they are not infallible. In fact, generally speaking, the longevity of an SSD seems to be pretty on par with that of an HDD. In other words, despite their many advantages, SSDs are still susceptible to memory deterioration and physical faults. Flash memory wears out over time, while capacitors, power supply, and controller chips all make SSDs prone to electrical failures.
For this reason, it’s crucial for MSPs to understand that SSDs can fail and prepare themselves with adequate precautionary measures to help customers avoid data loss. The bottom line is that SSD death can be unpredictable and unavoidable in some cases, which is why it’s best to learn about preemptive measures and SSD data recovery well in advance of a potential failure.
Some of the common data loss scenarios for hard drives include:
- Physical problems due to a drop or bumped drive
- Disk read/write head failure
- Power surge electronic damage
- Failed PCB (printed circuit board), which can sometimes cause a clicking noise
- Corrupt MBR (Master Boot Record)
- Corrupt partition table
- Damaged interface, such as USB or SATA connector
- Failed fuse, capacitor or resistor
- Bad motor controller
- Failed cache memory
- Failed voltage regulator
How can we help you recover your data?
The data recovery process depends on what has actually happened to your hard drive, memory stick or your digital storage media device. Our data recovery specialists will begin with a diagnosis of the hard drive to determine what exactly needs to be done and what solution fits your specific needs at what cost and then you are contacted by phone or email to discuss your data recovery job.
How much does data recovery cost?
Data recovery costs depend on the type of storage media, severity of damage, usage of spare parts, level of complexity and the amount of time the data recovery technician has to spend on the job in order to achieve a successful data recovery. We always inform our customers after the initial diagnosis and give them exact quote for data recovery.
Our data recovery process:
Step 1: We will determine the exact cause of the hard drive failure, analyze factors that could influence recovery, and provide a price quote. If you agree with the price quote, we will begin the recovery process.
Step 2: Our engineers treat mechanical damage, water accumulation, electronic issues, and file corruption using specialized technology to provide the best possible recovery in every case.
If you have provided a list of essential files, we will confirm the recovery at this stage of our process. We securely test your files with dedicated tools while taking precautions to protect your privacy.
Step 3: We will then return your data on a hard drive, flash drive, or other type of device. You only pay a full charge for your recovery if your requested files are restored to a completely functional condition.
