Utilizing solid state drives (SSD) is an emerging storage technology that promises lower rates of failure than other forms of storage media. However, just like any form of data storage, these advanced drives still fail. Because the technology is so new, most data recovery firms have a lower success rate for recovering data from such devices.
24 Hour Data specializes in working with SSDs, with a higher-than-industry average success rate. In fact, we are one of only a handful of professional firms that specialize in this type of retrieval. You don't want to trust your data to anyone else.

SSD Data Recovery is Best Left to the Experts
Many people don't know that this type of storage technology has actually been around since the 1950s. Those early storage devices were used in the first vacuum tube computers, but were soon replaced by less expensive technology.
The technology experienced a brief revival in the 1970s and 1980s, but the price of the devices prevented widespread use by consumers and businesses.
The 2007 CES (Consumer Electronics Show) in Las Vegas saw the introduction of reasonably priced drives for consumer use. Today, the devices are quite common, but the recovery process remains complicated. It's best to ensure that an established and experienced company handles these drives -- like the recovery experts at 24 Hour Data.

You Can Trust Us with Your SSD Data Recovery
Storing data on a solid state drive is common in the military and aerospace industries, as well as in other mission-critical businesses. The reliability of this advanced storage option and the security of the data is a key reason the U.S. government relies upon this type of storage -- but that also means when a drive fails, swift recovery of the lost information is imperative.
It also means the data stored on many such drives requires the utmost security protocols to keep it safe. We perform each and every recovery operation under the strictest confidence, keeping your data safe and secure until the moment we ship it back to you on a new drive or other media storage device. Our facility features multi-level intrusion detection and protection, and is managed and monitored 24/7.
We operate in a 100% secure environment within an ISO 5 (Class 100) certified facility, and all recovered data is kept safe and secure in a clean room environment that is ISO 5 (Class 100) certified, on an Isolated Secure Network with Enterprise Redundant Firewalls.
Government offices, Fortune 500s and aerospace companies rely on 24HourData to complete successful data retrieval. You can trust us with your sensitive data, too.

Is Your Data Safer on a Solid State Drive?
Unlike conventional hard drives (HDDs), solid state storage drives use microchips and contain no moving parts. Therefore, physical failure is less likely with this type of device.
These drives are less prone to physical damage from:
- physical shock
- water damage
Most solid state memory today consists of NAND-based flash memory, which retains memory even without power. The architecture within these drives is even more complex than in most RAID systems because NAND flash memory chips are used in parallel to increase speed and performance. Data striping and interleaving further enhance the performance of today's sophisticated technology.
These storage devices are manufactured with one of two types of NAND flash memory:
- single-level cell (SLC)
- multi-level cell (MLC)
MLC memory has more density, and therefore is less expensive, but is more prone to errors and also has fewer write/erase cycles.
The durability of a drive is measured in its write/erase cycles, or the number of times a block can be erased and re-written to before that block fails. A technique called wear leveling dynamically maps logical blocks to physical blocks, to prevent premature failure of any block from too many write/erase cycles. This, along with multi-channel flash microcontroller technology, enhances durability, but block failure is also one of the key reasons for data loss.
When a block can no longer retain data, or when data errors cannot be corrected by the drive's error correction algorithm, the drive's controllers merely “select” another block. But when all spare blocks are used, the drive will fail and you'll need specialized recovery services to retrieve your data.
Other common reasons for SSD failure and data loss include:
- abrupt power loss
- magnetic fields
- electric charges
Because of the complexity of these drives and recovery procedures, as well as significant variations in wear-leveling algorithms between manufacturers of solid state drives, it's important to call experts with extensive experience with this type of technology. Do not attempt a recovery procedure on your own -- this could result in permanent data loss.
At 24 Hour Data, our recovery experts know SSD inside and out, and perform successful recovery operations on all types of drives, including:
- San Disk
- Texas Memory Systems
- Run Core
