Solid State Disk (SSD) recovery

Solid State Drive (SSD) data recovery

Increasingly our portable devices have SSD-based storage and SSDs have become a popular choice for anyone using a mobile device, from digital cameras to tablets and laptops. Contrary to popular belief SSDs can fail and SSD data recovery requires specialist tools and experience.


Common Causes Of SSD Or Flash Data Loss

Unlike hard disk drives, solid state disks store data in flash memory chips. This eliminates data loss due to mechanical or hardware damages, such as head crashes or motor defects. But data loss occurs with SSD storage devices because they are susceptible to damage to the flash chips and how data is stored on them. So SSD and flash storage devices can suffer some of the same causes of data loss as traditional storage devices such as hardware failure, human error, computer viruses, power surges, natural disasters or software/programme corruption.

SSD recovery challenges

In addition to recovering data from the common sources of SSD failures, Ontrack engineers have overcome technical challenges that are unique to SSD and flash technology, including:

  • Proprietary data organisation (inconsistent industry standards among manufacturers of SSDs means that it is possible for each device recovery to be different from the next)
  • Address line complexity (microprocessor or communication routes)
  • Flash memory chip density (number of Flash chip configurations within an array)
  • Implementation of customised wear-levelling algorithms
  • Error Correction Code Variables
  • Encryption and Encoding variations
