We work with all types of SSD’s, including:
Most new laptops and netbooks will be sold with solid state drives instead of mechanical hard disk drives, and they are also the “go-to” for most IT professionals when it’s time to upgrade client devices. Prices have lowered considerably from those early years meaning they are far more cost effective and affordable, however, whilst they are robust in terms of the fact that no moving parts which can be damaged due to knocks, bumps or drops, please bear in mind that SSD’s are not infallible and we regularly recover data from failed SSD devices.
A back-up solution should always be in place if your data is important to you. A typical SSD uses what is called NAND-based flash memory. This is a non-volatile type of memory that you can turn off, and the disk won’t “forget” what was stored on it.
An SSD does not have a mechanical arm moving across a platter to read and write data as a typical hard disk drive would, it instead relies on an embedded processor called a ‘Controller’ to perform operations related to the reading and writing of stored data.
EADR Ltd have the very latest specialised tooling along with access to bespoke techniques (many developed in-house) to deal with data recovery from solid state drives with very high success rates.
