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 the 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 considering investing in 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 complimentary backup consulting services.

While we enjoy the fast speed of 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 a solid-state drive. Some of the newer MacBook laptops and Microsoft Surface computers contain SSD on the mainboard or logic board. 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 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 our 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.

    These guys are miracle workers. We had saved everything to an external hard drive, but the hard drive failed the first time we tried to access our pictures. All of our children’s baby pictures, videos, … More and a decade of family memories were seemingly gone. We were told locally that they couldn’t do anything and there was not much hope of it being recovered. We were referred to Capital Data Recovery as the only ones who might be able to help, and decided to give it a try even though it is quite a distance away from us.
    Levon was very patient and generous with his time going over all the questions that I had. From what I understand it was not an easy fix, and I think other companies would’ve cut their losses and given up after a fair first try, but it was clear that they understood how valuable the content was to us. They ultimately recovered every last picture and video off of the hard drive and got them back to us safely on a new, good quality device.
    Throughout the process, they were extremely professional, quick to reply, and clear about possible outcomes and timelines. Pricing was clear and fair. We are so grateful that they did not give up on on this job and really went above and beyond.

    My wife lightly dropped my Seagate hard drive on the floor and then I couldn't access my files anymore. I tried different PCs & cables and nothing worked. I found this company on Google and they … More are just incredible. I booked an appointment on their website & when I showed up I was greeted by Levon. In 1-2 days he gave me a free evaluation. And then a few days later, he restored 100% of my data. That's it. It literally works! Some reviews said it's expensive but I completely disagree. Whenever you have a misfortune or accident, whatever amount you will pay you will feel it's expensive. But quite frankly I found them to be affordable. And the fact that they get the job done in a timely manner with great communication and great service, with a functional website that accepts online appointments, is just fantastic! Super convenient location too, with easy and free parking. The way this company handled my issue is EXACTLY the "best case scenario" I had in my mind when I dropped my hard drive. That's it folks, this is the company you're looking for you can stop searching online. Thanks again Levon!

    We had a fire that destroyed our home this past November and we brought in our melted, wet and very stinky NAS device along with laptops to see if anything could be salvaged. Levon and his team recovered … More all the data which was incredible. For the laptop, which was encrypted, it took a few tries but Levon persisted and every file was recovered. We can't thank Capital Data Recovery enough for their determination, patience and great customer service along the way. Hoping to never have to need to data recovery services ever again but if we do it will be with Capital Data Recovery without hesitation, they completely deserve their 5 star rating!! Thanks Levon and team!!
