SD Card Data Recovery Services
Secure Digital (SD) is a popular family of flash memory card formats. SD cards are found in phones, tablets, cameras, GPS systems and other mobile devices, and with capacities of up to 2 terabytes, SD is an affordable and powerful option for digital storage.
SD cards are an extremely popular format due to their small physical size and durable design.
Four different formats make up the SD storage family: SDSC, SDIO, SDHC and SDXC. All of these technologies provide durable, non-volatile functionality, but data loss is still a common problem for SD card owners.
Common causes of data loss on Secure Digital memory cards include:
- Accidental Formatting
- Accidental File Deletion
- Data Corruption
- Memory Wear
- Physical Card Damage
Secure Data Recovery Services offers repair and recovery services for all SD, MiniSD and MicroSD cards. We are certified by all Secure Digital flash media manufacturers as a safe service provider, and with a Certified Class 10 ISO 4 Cleanroom and proprietary SD recovery tools, we provide the best success rates in our industry.
Failure Symptoms and Data Loss Scenarios
When a SD card stops functioning correctly, it may present a number of symptoms. Some cards will stop presenting accurate file directories. Your computer may not recognize the card or report an inaccurate capacity. If you accidentally delete or format your card, you may not notice data loss until you overwrite your files with new data.
To guarantee the best possible chances of a successful data recovery, you should immediately remove your SD card from your computer or mobile device as soon as you notice any signs of data loss. While there are a number of commercial data recovery utilities for memory cards, we do not recommend running software. Some data recovery programs inadvertently overwrite data or contribute to corruption issues, permanently damaging your files in the process. Safely treat data loss by calling Secure Data Recovery Services as soon as possible to discuss recovery options.
Recovering Data from SD Flash Cards
Our data recovery process varies depending on your SD card's filesystem, form factor and failure scenario. Within 24 hours of receiving your media, we will evaluate physical and logical damage to provide a risk-free diagnostics report with a media analysis, price quote and turnaround estimate.
If your SD card suffers from a physical issue, we will perform the necessary repairs in a certified Class 10 ISO 4 Cleanroom. Our Cleanroom allows our engineers to work safely with exposed flash card components without risking harmful media contamination, and due to the sensitivity of flash memory cards, Cleanroom technology is absolutely essential for data recovery.
After performing physical repairs and restoring worn components, we create a complete copy of your memory card. Secure Data Recovery Services' research division has developed specialized tools and utilities for the Secure Digital format, and we can quickly treat media corruption, accidental file deletion and other common logical issues. We are one of the only data recovery companies that can restore files on worn or degraded flash memory chips, and our engineers provide high data recovery success rates for the Secure Digital format.
We offer several service levels for SD card data recovery, including the industry's most reliable 24/7/365 emergency services. Our engineers complete most emergency SD recovery cases within 48 hours.
