Fast Recovery

My flashdrive, containing the last 5 years of my career, decided to stop working out of the blue. I reached out to Secure Data Recovery after seeing their promise that if they cannot recover your data, you will not be charged.

I was so upset when my USB flash drive stopped working. I lost photos and personal budgeting data of 10+ years. I tried so many DIY techniques from online.

CD & DVD Data Recovery

Though CDs and DVDs hold fewer files than a modern hard drive or SSD, there are still plenty that hold historical data, X-ray images, family pictures, and home movies. Most of the time, they sit in a drawer. Despite seldom usage, they do degrade over time, leading to problems when attempting to read or write to them. Even freshly-created files can be lost if the CD or DVD becomes physically damaged by scratches or dirt. We offer several data recovery solutions, helping users regain access to files stored on these media types, including file recovery software and professional data recovery services.

Floppy Disk Data Recovery

Even though modern data storage technology has rendered floppy disks obsolete, they are still used by many large organizations to service critical infrastructure. In some cases, a few bytes of data can be responsible for making sure an airport can operate or a security gate opens at the correct time. Due to their age, bad sectors and inadequate power supply can impact the movement of the drive itself, causing the data to become inaccessible. Our data recovery engineers have the data recovery tools, legacy equipment, and know-how to recover data from floppy disks. Contact us for a free quote.

Common causes of failure requiring removable media data recovery

  • Improper removal: Incorrectly ejecting media from its drive or other instances of mishandling can cause physical damage that results in media failure.
  • Physical & Electrical Drive Issues: If the drive itself is faulty or outdated, it may prove incompatible with the media, leading to data corruption or media failure.
  • Excessive Temperatures: Extreme heat or cold can cause the components of removable media to break down, leading to failure.
  • Usage Limitation: Using removable media to its storage limit can quickly lead to data corruption and failure.
  • Malicious Infection: Viruses, malware, and other threats can cause the media to become corrupted or damaged, leading to failure.

How to Recover Failed Removable Media

When you need data stored on a damaged removable storage media, SecureRecovery for Removable Disks recovers deleted files and can help resolve minor, non-invasive issues.

  1. Make sure the removable storage media is not physically damaged. Do not power it on if it is, as that will only lead to further damage. Instead, contact a data recovery company.
  2. If the removable storage media detects and shows the correct size, connect it to a Windows computer and try to recover the data using the SecureRecovery software. Use the free download button below to save the program to your computer, then follow the easy-to-use wizard to install and run it.
  3. Scan and save the results to another pen drive, thumb drive, or any storage other than the affected drive.

Still do not have access to the drive or you do not see your lost files? Do not give up! If you cannot get the data back using the free download, it means that you have a more severe issue that DIY software cannot resolve. Let our data recovery experts get the data back for you.

Compatible with most file types, removable media brands, including memory cards, USB drives, pen drives, thumb drives, Zip, Jaz, SyQuest, PocketZip, Sparq, LS-240 and others. Installation requires a Windows Operating System.

*Important note about DIY data recovery software. When possible, stop all writes to the affected removable storage media and make a copy of it to another storage device. Never download any new files or software to the affected storage media, as that may cause data to be permanently overwritten. Not sure what data recovery service option you need? We offer a free evaluation on all storage devices. Call 800-388-1266 now to speak to a data recovery advisor.
