SSD Data Recovery, Just like ‘spinning’ hard drives, there are several brands of solid-state drives on the market, but unfortunately, this is where the simplicity of identifying the drive ends, and the complicated issue of determining the controller begins. There are a plethora of controller chips in use with all bus types of SSD drives. SATA (2.5”, mSATA and M.2) and PCIe (HHHL, M.2 (NVMe), and U.2 (NVMe) all use different types of controllers.
Some controllers employ encryption technologies, some enable chip-off recoveries, and others are tightly locked, making recovery nearly impossible. Sometimes proprietary methods are required to get the job done, and other times custom solutions have to be formulated and deployed.
With Solid-State-Drives having such low recovery rates, the importance of having SSD recovery performed by competent companies – with specialist equipment and knowledge – to maximise the chance of recovering your data, is imperative.
Dragon Data Recovery is one such company that possesses specialist equipment and the skills needed to operate it so we can recover your data from failed Solid-State Drive’s.
Listed below are some common ways to identify if your Solid-State-Drive has problems. It is worth bearing in mind, these types of drives typically fail immediately, for example, you turn on the computer, and it states ‘no hard drive found’. Although, there are a few strange things Solid-State-Drives can do when they are malfunctioning; if your symptom is not listed below, don’t worry,

Is your Solid-State-Drive demonstrating any of these faults:
- Has the Solid-State-Drive become inaccessible?
- Is the Solid-State-Drive getting unusually hot?
- Is the Solid-State-Drive noticeably slower in handling your files?
- Are your files disappearing?
- Has the Solid-State-Drive been physically damaged or suffered damage from liquid ingress?
- Has the Solid-State-Drive been affected by a power surge or lightning strike?
- Do you get error messages related to storage problems, for example, ‘no drive detected’?
- Is the Solid-State-Drive not visible in a computers BIOS?

Common Solid-State-Drive Issues
Hard drives, no matter of the type/brand, can fail due to being physically damaged or by reaching their end-of-life cycle. There is an overabundance of things that can go wrong with all the variants of drives and these are just some of them.
SSD Failure, Read Write Failure, Printed Circuit Board Failure, Corrupt File System NTFS, Corrupt File System APFS, HFS, HFS+, FAT, FAT16, FAT32, SMART errors, S.M.A.R.T. warnings, S.M.A.R.T. Failure, Deleted or Missing Data / Files, Firmware or Manufacturing Faults, Disk Detected but not opening, Disk not Mounting, Physical Damage, Flashing folder icon containing
If you want to avoid further data loss at this stage, we recommend:
- Please stop attempting to access your defective SSD device
- Please do not dismantle your device in anyway
