Solid State Drive (SSD) Data Recovery

 

 

The SDD (Solid State Drive) is a memory device that stores computer data in non-volatile memory components and has no movable parts inside unlike the HDD’s (Hard Disk Drive) disk.

 

The technology is still very new, and many vendors are using their proprietary software to store data on memory components on a printed circuit board.

How to detect if your SSD drive is failing and what type of failure it is.

Data loss on SSDs occurs for a variety of reasons which belong to 4 types of failures mechanical, logical, electrical, and Firmware.

 

1. Mechanical

Causes:

This failure can be caused by the SSD experiencing physical damage.

It can also be caused by the controller components being damaged.

It should also be known that if you are using an old SSD, the erase procedures can start to cause damage.

 

It’s also caused if the PCB (Printed Circuit Board) is damaged.

Symptoms:

The mechanical failure can be identified if:

  • The memory is degraded.

  • The SSD is not recognised.

  • The SSD produces unusual sounds

 

2. Logical

Causes:

This failure can be caused by the system area being corrupted. This is when one or more files used by an SSD’s controller become corrupt, this keeps the controller from completing its process.

Symptoms:

The Logical failure can be identified if:

  • Files and or folders are deleted, either on accident or on purpose.

  • The SSD no longer boots up.

 

3. Electric

Causes:

This failure can be caused when the power to the SSD is interrupted while moving data.

It can also occur if a power surge has happened and damaged the SSD.

Symptoms:

The Electric failure can be identified if:

  • The SSD gets really hot.

  • The SSD is not recognised.

  • The run is extremely slow.

 

4. Firmware

Causes:

This failure can be caused if the drive’s firmware zone has been damaged.

It can also be caused by a power surge.

Symptoms:

The firmware can be identified if:

  • The SSD is not recognised.

  • The drive runs slower.

 

What should you do?

The first and most important thing to do is to immediately power off and unplug the SSD drive. It is important to stop using it and to stop anyone else who doesn’t know what they’re doing from using it. When you take these measures the chances of a successful data recovery increase greatly.

 

Is it possible to recover the data?

Yes, most of the time it can be fixed. When it comes to recovering data from a failed SSD, you often get only one shot at it. We have more than enough skills, knowledge, and expertise to recover the data. As well as advanced equipment which will greatly help us pull this off.

 

Are there circumstances that may lower the likelihood of saving data?

In most cases, we can recover your data. In most cases, SSDs have failed where there is no damage to the PCB (Printed Circuit Board), or files have been overwritten, the data can usually be recovered with integrity, but most of the cases that are not recoverable usually involve snapped PCBs or overwritten data.
