Because solid-state data drive recovery is relatively new, it’s something that a lot of IT professionals don’t properly understand… and a topic that remains a big mystery to many otherwise tech-savvy business leaders. In fact, most tend to assume that recovering files from an SSD drive is just like any other data recovery project.
That’s mostly true, but there is one important detail that every businessperson should be aware of: Because solid-state drives don’t have as many moving parts, they tend to make less noise (and display fewer symptoms) before failure.
In other words, even though SSDs are generally reliable, when they do have problems they are likely to be sudden and unexpected. You may not see them coming, or even realize something is wrong until you no longer have access to the files you need.
When that happens, don’t panic, and don’t attempt to resolve the problem yourself. As with any data recovery situation, tinkering with a damaged or broken drive (whether it’s a hard drive, flash drive, or SSD) is almost guaranteed to make things worse – and in fact, it could make data recovery altogether impossible.
If you find that your solid-state drive suddenly stops working, and know you need to get the files back quickly, turn to a team of experts like the one we have here at TTR. Solid-state drive data recovery is a new technology, and you want experts on your side who know what it takes to get your information back fast.
