Compact flash drives are lightweight and rewriteable devices capable of storing data. These data storage devices are integrated inside portable electronic devices like digital cameras, gaming devices, and mobile phones. Users need a card reader to access a memory card through a computer.
Data loss happens because of various reasons. The most common causes are accidental deletion, manufacturing defects, virus attacks, errors in handling the flash drive, corrupt data, and natural disasters. Data loss also sometimes occurs when users pull the card out while the electronic device is in the middle of a write or read process.
When data loss occurs, there are recovery procedures to get back lost data. Data recovery specialists use standardized compact flash drive recovery procedures and proprietary tools in data recovery labs to retrieve lost or inaccessible data from a compact flash drive.
Logical recovery is performed when electronic device owners unintentionally delete content or format the drive, the device recognizes the media but doesn’t show any data, or the data appears but it can’t be opened.
Physical recovery is required when the camera or computer fails to recognize the device, the electronic components are damaged, or there are other damages from fire or water.
Qualified Nand and Flash data recovery engineers are trained in restoring data from various brands such as SanDisk, Transcend and Kingston DataTraveler. They locate and restore files without overwriting or causing additional damage. The most common types of media that recovery specialists restore are photos, videos, movies, and documents. They aim to prevent further data loss by retrieving files in the safest and fastest manner.
