Unlike hard disk drives, which can make a lot of noise when they kick the bucket, solid state drives live and die in near-complete silence. This can make it hard for a layperson to have even the faintest clue what’s gone wrong when they stop being able to access their SSD. In this data recovery case, our client had a Samsung 850 EVO Pro solid state drive in their computer, which no longer booted up. Removing the drive and plugging it into a different computer, they found themselves with no way to access the data on the drive.
This Samsung 850 EVO went over to our flash memory data recovery specialists. Taking a look at the drive, we discovered an unusual problem—one we hadn’t seen in any of the SSDs that have visited our lab. It would take a lot of ingenuity to get our client’s data back. Fortunately for our client, though, ingenuity is in no short supply here in Gillware’s data recovery lab.
