Solid State/NAND Flash Memory Data Recovery

Almost every portable data storage device today relies on NAND flash memory to do its job. You can find NAND chips inside your SSD, your phone, your thumb drive, and your memory cards. You can even find a NAND chip augmenting some of your traditional spinning-platter hard drives. At Gillware Data Recovery, we have flash drive data recovery experts who can assist you with your flash media-related data recovery needs, regardless of what the device is.

Gillware provides such services for flash memory devices as…

Flash Drive Data Recovery


Thumb drives are vulnerable due to their size: the circuit board can short out; The USB plug can become bent or torn off, or jostled while plugged in; and ejecting a flash drive suddenly can cause damage to the filesystem.


Being so small and so frequently-used, phones are vulnerable devices. They can be dropped onto a hard surface or into a pool, lake, toilet, etc. They can be stepped on or run over. Water can get spilled on them. Or they can just die on you.

Phone Data Recovery
SD Card Data Recovery


An SD card can survive a fall that would kill a hard disk drive, it might not fare so well if it gets stepped on, driven over, etc. This could crack the PCB, or even the NAND chip itself.


Solid state drives are very durable. But this doesn’t make them indestructible or failure-proof. They are merely less prone to certain kinds of failure than hard disk drives.
