SSD Recovery

Solid state drive (SSD) technology is the newest storage media for laptops, notebooks, netbooks, tablets, and is even used in large scale enterprise storage equipment.

Solid State Drive (SSD) Forensics

Solid State Drives pose a variety of interesting challenges for computer forensics in comparison with traditional rotating magnetic platter hard drives. Most SSD devices are based on flash memory; some have battery backed SRAM or DRAM with a flash backing store.

Microserve has data reconstruction applications and techniques for the following systems:

The controller in a flash SSD is significantly more complex in the number of tasks it has to perform in comparison to a magnetic rotating drive, with the following features:

Solid State Drive Brands

Unlike hard disk drives, Solid State Drives store data in flash memory chips. This eliminates data loss due to mechanical or hardware damage, such as head crashes or motor defects.

Research shows low awareness of the technical complexity of SSD can jeopardize data availability. Data loss occurs with SSD storage devices because they are susceptible to damage to the flash chips and how data is stored

on them. Here are some common failures with SSD drives:

Additionally, SSD storage devices are susceptible to traditional data loss events such as human error, computer viruses, natural disasters, and software/programme corruption.

In addition to recovering data from the common sources of SSD failures, the Microserve Data Recovery team can overcome technical challenges that are unique to SSD and flash technology, such as decoding complex SSD data structures for individual brands, specialised controller chips, and many other SSD specific issues.

Microserve has developed data reconstruction programs that will identify, separate and reassemble your SSD memory so that your files or data will be able to be extracted.
