Not all data is stored in a desktop or laptop ‘Hard Disk’ format. Many clients prefer the flexibility and size of using USB flash drives (memory sticks), particularly for storing school/coursework or where data is being accessed and updated on a daily basis.
Whilst USB sticks and SD cards do not have any moving parts, problems can still arise with these devices if they are not used and removed correctly, or if accidental damage or corruption occurs.
Whatever the reason for your data loss, EADR can offer a tailored recovery plan to recover from any manufacturer, make, model or type of storage media. As with hard drive recoveries, a free inspection of your device will take place so we can talk you through the options available to recover your important data.
Data loss from USB sticks or SD/Micro SD cards can be caused by many different things! The most common reasons that we see are from clients who have accidentally deleted/reformatted SD cards, losing photographs. USB sticks are often physically damaged, with bent or snapped USB connectors. We’ve even recovered data after USB’s have been run over by a car!
SD cards and USB sticks can also become corrupt/unreadable due to media degradation.
We have also seen a rise in the number of “fake” USB sticks. These sticks purport to be large capacity devices (2TB) but in reality hold nowhere near the reported amount of data.
Due to the complexity and size of most common removable media sources such as USB flash drives, specialist tools and bespoke techniques are developed and employed by our technicians to ensure that the maximum amount of retrievable data is recovered on your behalf.
For devices which have physically been damaged such as bent/broken USB sticks, our extensive micro-soldering skills and knowledge of flash media technology means we are able to recover data from broken devices that would otherwise be destined for the bin!
