Micro SD Card Data Recovery

Professional Data Recovery Services For Corrupted, Formatted or Deleted SD and Micro SD Cards.

The chances of recovering lost data from a filed micro SD Card firstly depends on how the device has failed; Micro SD Cards that have been physically damaged by being snapped or cracked cannot generally be recovered (except in very rare and fortunate circumstances where the damage does not effect the flash memory), with this type of of failure there is no way to get the data back unfortunately. If the card is seemingly normal to look at and the card appears to be failed through no physical trauma there is more of a chance.

Failed Micro SD Card

How Do They Work?

Micro SD cards employ the same type of flash technology as standard SD Cards, however in some cases there is no way to access the storage area of the device.

My Card Is Not Physically Damaged

If the card has not been physically damaged the first thing to check is the underside of the device. To enable us or another data recovery company with the relevant skills and hardware, the card needs to have accessible pinouts to allow any attempt to gain direct access to the data area. These pinouts are configured in many ways depending on each individual brand and family of card but the pins are always circular and set in rows. Sometimes the pinouts are very clear or in other instances the pins can be underneath the surface.

Can I Do Anything?

After identifying if the device has the necessary pinouts not without very specialist hardware and technical experience.

I Cannot See Any Of These Pins, Does That Mean My You Wont Be Able To Do Anything?

Unfortunately there is no definitive answer that will answer this question for several reasons:

  • This technology is also emerging and the recovery from such devices is also constantly emerging as a result.
  • There are some devices which have their pin outs masked, for example some devices have their pin outs covered by a simple sticker link
  • Some pinouts are covered by the resin the device is coated in and can be difficult to see unless under certain lighting conditions.

I Have Read That Software Can Help

This is very much a myth. Devices such as this fail in many ways but when they fail in this manner no software whether free or licensed at a fee will be able to regain access to the data.

How Do You Get My Data Back?

As stated above companies with the relevant experience are able to firstly determine for certain if the pin outs are accessible and useable and secondly are able to use these pins to create customised rigs to allow the storage area to be accessed. The creation of these rigs tends to be unique with the pin outs varying for different devices and manufacturers.

At the point where access to the storage area has been regained is the point where the real recovery work begins, when a successful copy of the data area has been created we can then interrogate the data and effectively rebuild the data into a useable format.

What Our Customers Say About Us

I lost my data after inadvertently deleting my hard drive instead of my wife’s micro SD card in her phone. This was late at night after putting in some serious hours so I can only assume I was over tired and not really thinking. I right clicked the drive I thought was my wife’s card, it asked if I wanted to format it, I said ok and renamed it. A few seconds passed and I took out the SD card put it in the phone and the photos were still there. It took me a few moments to realise what I had done. When I went to the drive that held ten years work there was nothing there and it was renamed.

I went drip white I could hardly breathe… My wife came in asking what was wrong I explained that I had deleted the hard drive and lost everything not just photos, contracts, books I wrote, manuals for my company, all the history of everything I had ever done.

I quickly Googled data recovery whilst my wife found my friend Jack Daniels, there were a few that came up some saying they were 24 hours, when I rang no answer. I came across R3 Data Recovery and they said they were 24 hours, I rang and a real person answered my call. The chap I spoke to calmed me down, asked what I had done and what I had done after. I had the insight to not try and do anything myself as well as do nothing else to the drive. He told me they have great success and a good track record. I explained to him that right now I had lost anything so any data recovery would be better than none.

I have now had the drive back for a week or so and I have not found any of the work that is missing. I have lost my honeymoon pictures, however I may have these on disc somewhere. I estimate the data recovery is about 85%-90% successful. I know there are things missing but it has allowed me to carry on seamlessly without any major issues. I have as of yet to have really missed something. There was a bit of a glitch with the lead that when I connected the drive to the computer it told me the drive had malfunctioned. They organised a pick up the next day and within three days I had a new lead and the data was there. I think all in all even with the lead issue the returned my data within the ten days they said.

I cannot recommend them highly enough. Do not go for anyone else nor attempt anything yourself just call these guys and leave it with them, They kept me very informed and have done a cracking job I am amazed… they exceeded my expectations, thankfully.
