R3 USB flash data recovery service

There are many ways your Flash Memory can fail.

  • Physical - Bent, Snapped or Damaged Connectors
  • Logical - Deleted Data or Formatted Flash Memory
  • Electronic - Power Surges, Device Not Recognised
  • Bad Luck - Just Stopped Working, Dropped In Toilet, Chewed By a Dog, etc

​USB Device ​Not Recognised

Possibly up to 85% of all failures of all flash media appears to be when one minute your device is working perfectly - the next time you look the device either seems to lock up on you in mid use or appears completely dead! The device will be inserted into the USB port or card reader and you will either get:

  • "USB Device not recognised"
  • "Your device requires formatting"
  • Your device appears completely dead
  • Your device shows up as either "full" or "empty"

The cause of this message is nearly always the failure of the "controller" - a small chip that lies on the internal board. This chip is extremely important and it writes data to the device from the PC or laptop, and also allows access to the internal storage chip (NAND).

Most people will assume that the device is in some way faulty and try to run software and will often download a programme from the internet. Unfortunately this is no help at all as the data chip, which is separate to the controller, is very often intact but unreachable due to the failure of this controller.

In these circumstances the only way to recover the data is to simply send the device to us as we have exclusive technology that allows us to read data from these chips.

​Don't attempt to repair the device yourself, you simply cause more damage and run the risk of a non recovery. If you value the data on ​the device you will use a data recovery professional such as ourselves.​ Ring us on 0800 999 3282 to ​discuss your data recovery needs.

​Broken ​USB Memory Stick

​The second most common form of failure of a USB memory stick is when the device gets either bent, or the connector broken off. This is all to often a result of someone either dropping a laptop with the memory stick still inserted, or if the device is plugged into a desktop - knocking against it as you walk past.

If this should happen then you have an extremely high chance of getting your data back, statistically about 98-99%. Our skilled technicians can either repair the device or gain access to the chips on the internal board by fine rewiring and bypassing of the broken connectors.

In our opinion it is NOT worth attempting a repair yourself, very often people have rendered the repair process impossible by using the incorrect amount of solder or simply not having the required skills to complete the repair successfully. Our own electronics team recover devices like this all the time and have the expertise and tools to ensure your valuable data is recovered.

​​Don't Risk Losing All Your Important Data

It is so important that you contact us so we can help diagnose the best and cheapest way forward. If you try to recover the data yourself you may cause further damage depending on the issue, which is why it is important you contact us as early as possible.

We provide outstanding customer support and continually update you as to the current status of your recovery.

When my external backup drive failed I feared many years of documents were lost. Not only were the files recovered but presented back in their original folders so they could be easily reviewed and restored to my system. Sensitive documents were dealt with confidentially. Excellent timely service.
