USB Memory Stick Data Recovery:
USB memory sticks are cheap and inherently reliable, however their size and often poor construction leave them vunerable to damage and failure. Datlabs data recovery service supports all major types and capacity of memory stick: Sandisk, Lexar, Sony, Kingston, Toshiba, Integral, Busbi, LG, Transcend, Corsair, Videk, Dane-elec.
Faults are predominantly related to either an onboard PCB component failure , broken USB interface connector or poor construction.
*Please Note : Repair and recovery can prove abotive if attempts have been made to re-solder broken connectors using a soldering iron . Multilayer circuit board copper tracks are so thin that they disintegrate under the heat of a normal soldering iron.
Data recovery involves tracing electronic signals using a HF digital oscilloscope and replacing / repairing the faulty component with the aid of specialist surface mount soldering and de-soldering equipment.
USB Flash drives are prone to failures of many types leading to increasing instances of loss of valuable data. The easily portable nature of these devices mean they are vulnerable to physical damage from being dropped, crushed or suffering other traumas as a result of everyday life.
Damaged and bent connectors are THE most common failure type submitted to the Datlabs data recovery service. Data recovery is possible by de-soldering and removing the memory chip from the PCB and subsequently using a dedicated memory chip reader to transfer the stored data to another device. The chip being handled in an ESD compliant workshop environment.
Common symptoms of failures range from:
- Being totally unresponsive and not detected by the PC
- Being detected by the PC but with a message reporting "USB Device not Recognized."
- Detected by the PC, but with 0 Bytes capacity
- Detected by the PC but with no access to the files stored.
In all these cases Datlabs has solutions and applications that can successfully recover the data.
"My USB memory stick had a damaged connector : Datlabs recovered my data and sent me a replacement drive in time for my presentation ."
