SSD data recovery services

ssd data recovery

Unlike conventional hard drives that contain read-write heads and magnetic disk platters, SSD drives are equipped with fast electronics, consisting of a complex array of very fast NAND flash memory chips. Most of the modern SSD drives come with sophisticated encryption algorithms that are designed to protect user data as well as manufacturer's intellectual property.

The main component of the SSD drive is the controller that uses complex algorithms designed to distribute data across flash memory chips (NAND). The absolute advantage of SSD over the HDD is speed; however, one must realize that SSD is still a fairly new tech and proper backups must be maintained. We recommend using SSD drives as boot drives or for gaming systems. If you plan on using SSD storage media for storing your data, we highly recommend to consider investing into a well known technology, such as a hard drive, combined into a RAID array. You may have a simple mirror raid (RAID1) which would mirror data across two drives, or you may get a more complex RAID5 configuration where we recommend a minimum of four hard drives. If we are helping you with your data recovery project, you will also benefit from our complementary backup consulting services.

While we enjoy the fast speed of the modern SSD drives, they definitely lack the most critical factor - reliability. While theoretically SSD drives are a new modern technology, the lifespan of an average solid state drive is between one to three years, depending on the use and the application. Keeping that factor in mind should help you set proper expectations and help organize your backup strategy accordingly.

Some popular SSD drive interfaces are:
SATA, mSata, M.2, U.2, PCIe, NVMe.

SSD manufacturers that are marketed and sold these days are:
ADATA, Apple, Corsair Memory, Crucial, HGST, Imation, Intel, Kingston, Lexar Media, Micron Technology, Mushkin, OCZ, Toshiba, OWC, Patriot Memory, Plextor, PNY Technologies, Samsung, SanDisk, WD, Seagate Technology, Silicon-Power, Silicon Motion Technology, SK Hynix, Synology.

Whether it's an Apple MacBook Air, Apple MacBook Pro, iMac, MacMini - they may all be equipped with the solid state drive. Some of the newer MacBook laptops and Microsoft Surface computers contain SSD on the mainboard or logicboard. Most of these models are still recoverable and we have the data recovery solutions that help us address issues that seem hopeless.

With over 17 years of professional data recovery experience, our team has what it takes to reunite you with your lost data, whether it's a crucial business data or sentimental home photos and videos of your loved ones.

We are able to recover data from most solid state drives, whether encrypted or not, Apple, Dell, Lenovo, HP, Microsoft, Acer and other brands of laptop or desktop computers.

Both local Apple stores in Ottawa (Bayshore and Rideau) have been referring their local customers to us for various data recovery needs, and we’ve done out best to keep that recovery rate increasing.

We have successfully recovered data from encrypted FileVault containers, corrupted Time Machine backups, damaged Fusion drive configurations, and failed Apple SSD drives.

We will help you get your data back quickly and securely, so you can get back up and running with minimal downtime.

Reach out to our support team to get assistance with your project. We only aim for a successful outcome.


24hr turn around. Response time within hours of your inquiry. Price appropriate for incredible service. Friendly. Above and beyond to put your mind at ease. I received a call on a Friday afternoon to tell me my data would be 100% recoverable "just so I could enjoy my weekend" (quoted from the tech who called me). 11/10! Highly recommended. Thank you!
Patrick.

    There are no words to describe how amazing Levon and his team at Capital Data Recovery really are. I lost all of my university files and photography due to my hard drive breaking and was recommended to … More take it to Levon.
    He was fantastic at explaining how the damage occurred and the full process of attempting to restore the information. When it came to getting a new hard drive to put the information onto, he was amazing at giving me multiple drive options at great price points!
    What amazed me the most to refer this company is the amount of time and dedication Levon and his team put into retrieving my information. With knowing how valuable this was to me he contacted people from outside of his office to virtually assist in retrieving the information. Above and Beyond does not even begin to describe their efforts.
    After roughly six long months of hard work they were finally able to retrieve 100% of my files and am forever grateful to not have lost all of my valuable photos and files.
    Thank you Levon, your hard work and dedication does not go unnoticed!

    My back up hard drive crashed and I was devastated. I was so worried I had lost everything. Levon at Capital Data Recovery was able to recover everything and transfer to another drive. I cannot thank … More him enough for saving my files (mostly photos and videos) from as far back as 2003. I highly recommend Capital Data Recovery. They are very professional and highly trained. If I ever need to recover data again, I will definitely hire their services!
    Thank you Levon!
