SSD, Fusion and Hybrid Drive Recovery Specialists
As robust as the solid-state drive is, it is still vulnerable to logical failure. Logical failure is the result of system corruption from virus or malware attacks. Human error is also responsible for logical failure, through accidental deletion. Some users will not research the many virus hoaxes floating around on the Internet and distributed through email. Often, critical system files are deleted because of these hoaxes. Many machines become inoperable because they can no longer boot.
Physical failure in solid-state drives is often the result of electrical and electronic malfunctions and anomalies in power systems, such as voltage spikes and power outages. Electrical shorts in the drive controller will also cause the SSD to malfunction. Repairing these drives can be complicated. Extensive training in electrical and electronic repair is required. A missed electrical connection or improperly wired or installed component can cause further damage to the drive.
It is evident that there are many factors that may contribute to a hard drive failure. We have outlined only the most common occurrences. If your Solid State Drive is experiencing other symptoms, we are still able to help. We pride ourselves in our ability to recover data from any type of failure. We are not limited by the complexity, brand, size, or manufacturer of your hard drive.
The initial evaluation usually takes between 1-3 business days depending on the extent of the damage. Upon completion of the evaluation, you will receive an exact quote for the recovery. We will also provide you with the estimated time to completion and probable success rate. You can stop by anytime. An appointment is not required.
Level one Solid State Drive Data Recovery is when your hard drive is working properly but there is other damage to the computer. This prevents you from accessing your data. For example, you spilled liquid on the computer and it no longer turns on. As long as the drive wasn’t damaged by the liquid, this would qualify as a level one recovery.
Level one recoveries are usually completed within 2 business days. This often requires complete disassembly of your machine in order to gain access to the drive. Once the drive is removed, it will be tested to confirm that a level one recovery is possible. If so, we will transfer all of the data to either an external hard drive or to another computer. The more data there is on the drive, the longer the transfer will take.
Level two Solid State Drive Data Recovery is where about 80% of our clients fall. In this case, the drive has started to fail but has not yet suffered a catastrophic failure. If the computer powers on but does not boot, hangs, or flashes a folder icon then it may qualify for a level two recovery. However, not all drives with these symptoms will be recoverable using these techniques.
We are usually able to extract the data from the failing drives using specialized level two recovery tools. Failing drives are very delicate and must be handled properly. A level 2 recovery attempts to recover as much data as possible before the drive suffers a complete failure. Upon completion, you will be able to review the recovered data and confirm that it has been recovered to your complete satisfaction. If you are not satisfied, there is no charge for the attempt.
About 15% of our customers have no other option aside from a level three Solid State Drive Data Recovery. This is the last resort when dealing with severely damaged drives. It can also be used as a safer alternative to level two methods. At this level, the drive is sent into our clean room laboratory for extensive reconstructive work. The parts inside of a hard drive are incredibly delicate and can be easily destroyed with one wrong move. These recoveries can be considered the equivalent to open heart surgery. They are very complex and require great skill and precision.
Before files can be restored, the drive must be disassembled and repaired. This must be done in a special environment in order to prevent damage to the data. A Class 100 clean room is necessary to safely complete a level 3 repair. Exact matching donor drives must be used to restore the patient drive. Once the data can be read properly, the file system reconstruction can begin. Depending on the extent of the damage, we can often recover all or most of the data.
