Because solid-state hard drives have only recently become very popular, there are a lot of misconceptions out there about what you should do when one of them fails… or even the odds of whether they are likely to fail or not in the first place.
The first thing to know is that, as a rule, solid-state drives tend to be fairly reliable (as you’d expect, given that they have no moving parts than traditional hard drives do). But, because they are new and constructed differently, the process of extracting files from damaged SSDs can be a little bit different.
With that in mind, there are three things you want in a solid-state drive data recovery service:
1. Solid-state drive data recovery expertise. As with any form of hard drive repair, an untrained (or improperly trained) technician can actually do quite a bit of damage and render the information completely unreadable. Make sure your data recovery partner understands SSDs.
2. The ability to extract encrypted files. Because SSDs are typically found on newer, high-performance computers and devices, they often contain sensitive, password-protected material. You want a data recovery team that can work with these files and keep your confidential information safe.
3. Fast, reliable service. Some data recovery companies offer low rates on damaged SSDs because they send the work overseas – meaning that you won’t get your drive back for weeks, or longer. Make sure you work with an industry leader who can deliver acceptable turnaround times.
