Flash Drive Repair and Recovery

While flash drive repair is complex, it is critical to successful recoveries. These repairs can fix connection issues, faulty components on the circuit board, and severely damaged files. We have customized tools and techniques to address any of these situations and salvage your important data. Contact and contactless soldering stations mean we can perform a range of board-level repairs on a microscopic level.

Our team can also recover raw data or encrypted files from a thumb drive. In addition, we maintain a collection of flash controllers in our labs. That library allows us to work with USB drives regardless of their cell design.

Here are some of the failures we can repair:

  • Bent Connectors
  • Failed Electronics
  • Damaged Firmware
  • File Corruption
  • Malware or Virus

How To Recover USB Drive

Flash drives with physical damage require a professional recovery service. However, data recovery software can often resolve cases involving accidental deletion and formatting. We developed our free program, SecureRecovery® for Flash, to reverse these data loss scenarios quickly and restore deleted files. The user-friendly tool scans the flash drive for traces of data and saves it to a new folder.

To recover data from a USB drive when that happens:

  • Install SecureRecovery® for Flash for free and launch the software.
  • Choose Open Partition from the menu.
  • Select the device to scan when prompted and click OK.
  • Choose the files to recover after the scan locates data.
  • Click Save Selected Items to restore the deleted files to a new folder.

Note: Sometimes, software will only locate some deleted or formatted data on the flash drive. In that case, the USB stick might benefit from expert assistance. Contact us to learn more about a tailored approach.

Jake Gambatese is the BEST!

Jake has been assigned to 2 different data recovery cases of mine. He communicated many times throughout the process, he answered questions quickly, and he made the entire experience AMAZING for me. I never look forward to any of my hard drives experiencing problems with data, but I always reach out to Jake because I know he will take care of everything perfectly. Thank you, Jake!

He outlined the procedure and timeline for me, as well as the next s... Read More

I Had Given Up Hope a Year Ago!

Hi Eric:
Please know I had given up hope of ever retrieving my photos even though they are of a simple trip, seeing old friends, enjoying Amish country, a one-room schoolhouse conference, and Gettysburg Battlefield. The images were in my memory, but I was saddened that I couldn’t keep them close and share them as I do every year with the participants. Now I can. Thank you ever so much. I dou... Read More

Secure Data Recovery saved my data life!

My thumb drive with my personal and work life simply stopped. No connection at all to any USB port. Elliot Fisher (my rep) worked diligently with me to not only get all my data recovered, but did it from a Tuesday afternoon to a Friday morning - incredible turn-around time.
