MacBook Pro Internal SSD Fails after Water Spill

MacBook Pro Internal SSD Fails after Water Spill

Jon Lidaka works at a mid-sized tech company and often brings files home with him on his MacBook Pro laptop. The internal SSD drive not only stores important work information but a large collection of his personal documents, images, videos, and music files.

The MacBook Pro sustained water damage after an accidental spill and became unresponsive. Mr. Lidaka could no longer access his work or personal files, and he feared that the laptop’s hard drive had become permanently damaged and his data irrecoverably lost.

Mac Data Recovery Specialists

Mr. Lidaka contacted Secure Data Recovery (SDR) through a local partner in Raleigh, which shipped the MacBook Pro to one of its data recovery centers. Mac Certified Technicians conducted a thorough diagnostic to determine the extent of any damage to the MacBook Pro’s internal components. The SDR data recovery team determined that a recovery was possible.

After receiving authorization to proceed, SDR’s expert technicians removed the failed internal SSD drive and successfully imaged its contents in a certified Class 10 ISO 4 cleanroom. Then they scanned the drive’s entire file system to locate all available data and successfully extracted it to secure storage servers.

Successful MacBook Data Recovery

SDR’s data recovery engineers were able to restore all previously lost data from Mr. Lidaka’s water-damaged MacBook Pro, comprising about 50 GB, and they safely transferred it to a customer-supplied replacement drive. The restored data was then securely shipped back to Mr. Lidaka.

SDR’s team specializes in data recovery from all Apple Mac devices, including iMac desktop computers, MacBook Pro and MacBook Air laptops, iPads, iPhones, and all other mobile devices. SDR engineers also pioneered complex data recovery techniques for SSD and SSHD storage devices.
