While solid-state drives (SSDs for short) were a new, exciting, and somewhat expensive addition to computers and tablets just a few years ago, now almost all new devices include them. Computer buyers and manufacturers alike love them because they are faster, smaller, quieter, and generally more durable than traditional hard drives are.
But, as with any technology when it goes mainstream, a small percentage of solid-state drives are eventually going to fail or need maintenance. In fact, we are already seeing requests for emergency data recovery on SSDs.
One question customers sometimes have is: Is data recovery different with solid-state drives? The short answer is “yes,” and here are a few things you should know:
Solid-state drives are more durable, but not invincible. SSDs are often marketed as being more durable than traditional hard drives, which they are. But, that doesn’t mean they can’t be damaged by drops, bumps, manufacturer defects, and dozens of other causes.
You definitely want to work with a vendor that’s familiar with solid-state technology. Although using solid-state drives might not be much different for you, repairing them can be. Make sure to choose a data recovery provider that understands solid-state technology.
Traditional emergency data recovery details are still important. As with any data recovery project, you want to ensure that the business you are working with has a reputation for speed, service, confidentiality, and getting the right results.
