Can You Recover Data From a Failed SSD?
What happens to data inside your SSD when it becomes dead? Can it be recovered? And after all, how can we recover data from this particular type of disk? These are the questions I will try to address in this article.
USB Drive Errors and Recovering Data From a Damaged or Non-Operable USB Flash Drive
Read this article to learn more about causes of problems with USB flash drives or disks and how to fix them, how to recover data from a faulty media. USB drives can easily be connected to any device and they are widely used to store various information. However, a USB drive suddenly breaking down can make you lose your data. This article will tell you about possible causes for USB drives to get damaged, and about the ways to repair them and recover the lost information.
SDXC: Recovering 64GB and 128GB Memory Cards
This article is a must-read if you want to know the difference between SD, SDHC and SDXC memory cards, and the peculiarities of data recovery from SDHC and SDXC cards.
Storage is getting cheaper, smaller while offering higher capacity every year. 64 GB memory cards are extremely common in today’s smartphones, digital cameras, tablets and media players. Due to their sheer capacity, a single failure can cause a local catastrophe with that much information being gone.
SMART Parameters and Early Signs
of a Failing Hard Disk
This article talks about tools to use and parameters to check for to prevent accidental data loss due to hard drive failure.
S.M.A.R.T. (or simply SMART) is a monitoring system built into most modern hard drives. S.M.A.R.T. stands for Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology. The technology helps detect various reliability problems at an early stage, giving warning signs well in advance before the hard drive fails. By reading (and interpreting) the indicators, the user can prevent data loss by replacing the disk before the crash occurs. But what S.M.A.R.T. flags should we look at? There are dozens available!
Predicting SSD Failures:
Specific S.M.A.R.T. Values
Read about the S.M.A.R.T. values peculiar to SSDs and software to show you the disk wear level.
SSD drives don’t have some parameters that are specific to magnetic hard drives. Instead, they have other variables representing overall health of the disk. S.M.A.R.T. tools calculate SSD health by analyzing the following variables: Reallocated Sectors Count, Current Pending Sectors Count, Uncorrectable Sector Count, as well as Percentage of the Rated Lifetime Used (or SSD Life Left, whichever is available).
