50% Logical Failure
Your SSD arranges data according to highly-organized frameworks. When read-write errors disrupt these schemes and partition records, the logical failures that result might prevent your computer from starting up or being able to recognize the corrupted device. In some cases, you’ll even experience crippling lag.
15% Firmware Failure
The controller that regulates the operation of your SSD depends on firmware, specialized low-level programming created by the device manufacturer to optimize performance. Failed updates and other errors can corrupt this firmware, potentially rendering your drive completely unrecognizable except to cleanroom-equipped recovery experts.
30% Electronic Failure
Moisture, static electricity, mechanical damage, environmental exposure and other hazards can all damage the delicate circuits your SSDs rely on. Electronic failures vary, so they’re not always obvious, and many cause erratic behaviors that only experts can overcome.
5% Deleted Failure
Your data may have been erased due to an operator oversight, or your software may have made the mistake. While not as common as other failure modes, deletion requires just as much forensic skill to recover data.
