Emergency Stick Delivered With Rice

Today at R3 we greeted a client into the lab that was In need of a speedy and efficient recovery. The failed device was a USB stick. And the data stored on the stick was integral to the client's occupation, as they have recently started a new job that required lots of pre-planning. Coincidentally all of the aforementioned planning was housed on the device in question.

The reason for the failure was unfortunate. Liquid damage had occurred as a result of accidental water spillage and components housed on the device's PCB had blown. In an Endearing attempt to try and fix the issue of the spilled liquid the client had left the USB stick in a container filled with rice. This method, with vastly varying success has been known to work with liquid damaged smart phones, however the damage had already been done and needed the attention of a data recovery specialist.

Water damaged USB stick

Luckily here at R3 Data Recovery Ltd we have such individuals on hand, and in a swift and assuring manner the memory stick was diagnosed and recovery was attempted, resulting in some very intricate soldering.​

However this ultimately proved fruitless in recovering the lost data, and a separate method had to be taken in the form of a NAND read.​

While more costly in price and engineer time, the NAND read proved successful and all parties concerned left satisfied and happy. And perhaps most importantly within the predicted time that our emergency service provides here at R3, which is always within 72 hours.

What Our Customers Say About Us

R3 Data Recovery were unbelievably fast in their response to our query and even faster when it came to actual work being completed. They came with quotation within minutes from sending an email and assured us that all the effort will be taken to meet our needs and deadline. They have recovered all sensitive survey data from an encrypted SSD disk over the weekend and have communicated thoroughly during the process. Their fast courier pick-up and drop-off assured that from Friday night panic we ended up with all data restored and delivered by Monday morning. Definitely recommended service and should we ever need this again (and let’s hope not) we know where to come.
