SSD data recovery
Is it possible to recover lost data on an SSD? Yes, it is possible. SSD slowly enter storage device markets and try to replace mechanical HDD. Solid State Drives in fact do have a lot of positive qualities and advantages compared to older generations. They possess a high write speed, a 3-5-year manufacturer warranty, durability against mechanical stress like strikes and falls and lower overheating rate while working. Relatively high price in comparison to older generations and not fully perfected technology of memory production is what slows the enter of SSD into the market.
Most common SSD malfunctions.
The most common malfunction
- Following a formatting;
- Following data deletion;
- OS is detected as RAW.
Controller-related problems and, as a result, unavailability of disk usage in normal cases:
- Disk volume is either 0 byte or several megabytes.
- Write and read errors
- Firmware errors
- Disk is undetected in BIOS
- Password request at data access.
In all these cases data recovery is possible, however in cases of memory cell wear, as well as in flash drive or memory card data recovery, it may be accompanied by errors and, as a result, some data might be damaged.
The SSD is not mechanical disk therefore it does not make a noice.
SSD Control Board.
Mechanical issues happen when SSD is used as an external storage device.
Electrical and overheating issues, while rare, are connected to power surges and devices overheating for various reasons, including unfortunate disk placement.

Is it possible to restore data from a formatted SSD?
In fact, restoring deleted data or data from a formatted SSD is problematic. If we examine HDD, we can see that a place that had data in it that is now deemed deleted is now marked as ‘vacant’ and will be gradually overwritten while previous data remains in place.
In case data is deleted from SSD or such drive is formatted, an embedded function called TRIM constantly blends and removes the unused space that was once filled with data. This function is the main reason why recovering deleted data on an SSD is considerably harder. In these cases, one might say HDD have a certain advantage over newer technologies.
Therefore, in order to gain access to data on SSD, unique equipment made specifically for this kind of disks is necessary.
