Although the SSD’s architecture is that much different from the traditional hard drive, it is not impregnable. An SSD will still suffer data loss if the internal components are damaged. Instead of a rotating disk, the SSD uses Flash memory or DDR RAM. However, in as much as the SSD is more shockproof, it will still lose data if badly damaged. In such a case, you will notice that the computer won’t even recognize if you plug in the SSD. Therefore, before attempting any SSD drive repair efforts, the engineers must go through the hard drive and discover whether it can be salvaged or not.
• Loss of partitions Hard drives are partitioned to separate data and to create a sense of separation between various sections on one hard drive. A partition can be lost due to human mistakes or even due to malware. As such, when the partition is deleted, all the corresponding data under that partition is usually lost or unavailable. If this data is not essential to you, you can simply create a new partition or repartition the entire drive afresh.
What is the cost of SSD Data Recovery Service?
Data recovery in SSDs is not a cheap affair. While the sizes of the hard drives might differ, a drive that needs recovery falls into one of the following categories:
Basic level: this refers to when the drive is “alive” and can be imaged on the data recovery equipment. This basically means that the drive has minimal bad sectors and logic errors.
Advanced level: this refers to when the drive is unrecognizable to the engineers and cannot be mapped by the recovery software. This means there could be firmware level issues/corruption that needs to be fixed first. As such, the costs of repairing the drive must be factored in.
Another issue is whether the drive was encrypted or not. If data loss happens on an encrypted drive, it might have a tough time recovering said data without assistance from the manufacturer. With help from the manufacturer, the cost of recovering the data might be at around $700. However, without the assistance from the manufacturers, that price can shoot beyond $3500.
Whether you prefer doing the SSD data recovery process yourself or hiring the services of an SSD drive repair company, consulting with a reputable data recovery firm like SalvageData is the best option. Armed with years of experience and skill, we make every effort to ensure your SSD data recovery process is successful.
