SSD data recovery
A Solid State Disk is a type of memory that performs the same functions as a normal Hard Disk, i.e. it stores all the information, files and data as a classic hard disk does.
The main difference is that while normal hard drives contain electro-mechanical parts that are sensitive to shocks, SSDs have no moving parts because they use circuits similar to those in USB sticks. This means that an SSD has significantly higher shock resistance than a classic Hard Disk.
One of the main reasons for a normal hard disk to stop working is a failure due to a fall or impact, which is why many people, even computer experts, are convinced that it is impossible to lose data from an SSD.
However, SSDs are still devices, and as such they can be damaged, malfunction or cease functioning without warning.
DATA RECOVERY FROM SSD
The recovery of deleted data on SSD is only possible if the PC was immediately turned off and no longer turned on after the files were deleted.
For technical reasons specific to SSDs, data that are mistakenly erased can only be recovered if action is taken to remedy the failure within one or two hours of operation, using only professional equipment approved for the purpose.
The situation is different, however, in cases where the disk has suddenly stopped working and it is impossible to read or write on it: this is a failure that often permits the recovery of data.
Following the appropriate preliminary checks of the internal components, the bits must be extracted and recomposed using specific software and equipment. This operation is particularly complex and time-consuming.
With all the cutting-edge instruments for this kind of intervention available at our fingertips, Vedli Datalab guarantees the highest probability of success in recovering data from a faulty SSD.
