Broken Memory Stick - USB Data Recovery Services

Snapped USB stick

USB memory sticks are a very convenient way of keeping your data close to you as you move from one place to another. Teachers/lecturers and students especially but anyone who moves from computer to computer need a way to keep their data with them. USB drives, memory sticks, pen drives (call them what you will), are a very convenient and easy way to keep your data with you while you move around.

Cloud storage is all good and well but USB sticks are just so easy to use. No installing of cloud storage apps, no waiting until the data syncs on a new PC you haven't used before, no logging into a web site... Plug and play - its just so convenient.

Simple though comes with its own dangers. USB devices are very much prone to failure that users are not advised of when they purchase them.

Snapped USB stick

The various components on the devices are very robust but they have weak points:

  • Physical damge - Where do we start?
  • The dog chewed my memory stick.
  • It snapped while it was plugged into my laptop.
  • I ran over it with my car.
  • We have seen them all.

Non-physical Damage

Sometimes these devices will just stop working, this is normally caused by an electronic component failure.

In most cases the controller chip fails, of course the device will not be useable and may behave in the following way:

  • It may show/register on your computer but not be accessible.
  • Not be detected on your computer at all.
  • Get very hot when you plug the device in.

Physical Damage

Physical damage is just that, it has been damaged by someone or something accidentally. It is also equally impossible to predict when the controller might fail but what isn't impossible is getting the data back, not for our engineers at R3.

If your device doesn't behave as it should contact our team of experts at 0800 999 3282. Our skilled professionals will be able to reliably recover data on your USB stick and provide industry-leading turnaround times which give you the confidence that's necessary to develop a solid, effective recovery plan.

What Our Customers Say About Us

One of our main RAID Servers went down. We needed the data urgent. R3 organised a courier, within 1 hour it was collected and soon back with them. They worked throughout the night, keeping me consistently up to date. The whole issue was resolved within 24 hours, ensuring we were back up and running. I cannot thank and Praise these guys enough!!
