Various Secure Digital cards are used to store pictures, videos, and other valuable files. Data loss from these devices can be complicated and very distressing. The common reasons for data failure are accidental deletion of documents or device formatting.
There are a few steps you should go through when facing data loss. First of all, immediately stop using the SD memory card. Its further use will increase the probability of overwriting data, leading to complications when trying to recover them.
PITS Global Data Recovery Services will help restore deleted, formatted, or lost images, music files, videos, and other data. With the help of our highly-trained data recovery team, you can access files from SD memory cards without the required timeframe. It would help if you did not use memory card recovery software as their operation makes successful data recovery nearly impossible.
SD XC Class 10 Card Data Recovery
To recover data from memory cards, our engineers use a special technique and unsolder the memory chips from the device. Then, using a flash reader stand, the data is read from NAND chips microcircuits. The data in the binary image is then decrypted using a special method. If required, our experts can create an all-encompassing algorithm for the most recent memory cards that don’t have established solutions.
The parameters of the algorithm change depending on the drive controller type. With this method, retrieving data from a RAW file system is guaranteed to be successful.
Recently we received a Focus SD XC Class 10 card data recovery request from a customer that lost all his video from a recent family vacation. He tried to access the memory card files and copy them onto his desktop, but the files were corrupted.
The video files were not accessible, and the operating system was unable to copy them. After doing some research, the customer decided to trust us with the data of his media. After speaking with our customer support representative, he shipped his memory card to our lab.
SD XC Class 10 Card Chip-off Recovery
The evaluation showed that the SD controller failed. In these cases, the data is retrieved from memory dumps and decrypted using key decryption algorithms.
A recovery technique known as “chip-off” includes removing a memory chip from a device, getting it ready for a physical memory dump, and retrieving data from that dump.
Due to the variety of memory microcircuit types and the need for a specific hardware programmer for each type, this data retrieval technique is considered difficult to implement. Additionally, a memory chip cannot be reinstalled after being unsoldered.
After receiving the media storage, our engineers got to work on it in our ISO Certified Class 10 Certified Cleanroom. All memory chips were accessed and then cleaned with an ultrasonic cleaner.
The next phase included using card readers to extract all of the data. Engineers found out that the files lost their formats and were recognized as RAW documents when the data was extracted from damaged chips.
With fully functional or defective SD cards, the RAW format lacks structure and the device’s file system. SD cards become RAW format as a result of system errors, erroneous computer shutdowns, and power supply issues.
SD Card RAW Files Restoration
To encrypt the files and recover crucial videos, our engineers executed the required commands. All of the files began transferring to a new SD card by our data recovery specialists.
After running the algorithms, we put the files in the intended format, NTFS, as the card went RAW due to physical failure. It demonstrated that the procedure had been effective.
All the essential files were recovered from the corrupted SD card. The client reviewed restored files via a remote session, approved our data recovery results, and we shipped all the lost files on a new memory card.
It may appear simple to use the SD card recovery software that is made available to a wide range of users to recover the logical structure of the media storage devices. However, the files are permanently damaged as a result of data recovery software processes. You can be confident that the file system restoration will be professionally done by our specialists.
