Samsung SSD Data Recovery
Samsung SSD drive provides a faster and safer solution for data storage and transferring. This emerging storage technology also ensures a lower rate of failure than other types of storage media. But like other form of data storage, these advanced drives also fail.
Common Samsung SSD Failures
Many people assume that Samsung SSD drives cannot crash or other data loss issues generally associated with traditional hard drives. Solid State Drives (SSDs) store data in flash memory chips. They don’t have any moving components but there are a number of sensitive electronic components in the SSD that can get damaged and get failed for a variety of reasons. Data loss can happen due to physical damage to the flash memory chips and how the data is logically stored on the SSD. Some common Samsung SSD failures include:
- Electronic or physical component damage
- Bad sectors
- Fire corruption by Operating system or other software issues
- Memory wear due to excessive overwrites
- Flash cell degradation
- Data corruption due to failures or power surges
- Damage to connectors and printed circuit boards
- Controller chip failure
- Accidental file deletion from Samsung SSD
- Damage from Trojan Horses, Viruses and other malicious programs
- Floods, fire and other natural disasters
Types of Samsung SSD
A SSD accesses data using NAND flash memory and has no mechanical moving parts unlike hard drives, so they are more durable. SSD’s are less prone to physical shock & water damage and are commonly used in tablets, smartphones and increasingly in desktops and laptops.
There are mainly 2 different interfaces for data transfer (PCIe and SATA), 2 different protocols (NVMe and AHCI), and 4 physical connectors (SATA, M.2, PCIe and mSATA). Now let’s have a quick breakdown of the terminology.
- SATA – This physical connector is used by most SSDs, as well as, 2.5 inch and 3.5 inch hard drives.
- 2 – This is a physical connector used for both PCIe and SATA SSDs. M.2 drives are smaller than 2.5 inch SATA drives, thus used in ultrabooks and high-end PCs.
- mSATA – Before M.2 became common, the mSATA drives were used in many ultrabooks.
- PCIe – PCIe is a faster interface that is capable of transferring up to 985 MB/s per ‘lane’.
- NVMe – It is a new interface protocol for PCIe, replacing the place of the earlier AHCI protocol used with hard drives and SATA SSDs.
- Portable SSD – Samsung portable SSD offers external storage for your tablet, PC, laptop and smartphone. It uses the V-NAND technology for compact storage.
Have your Samsung SSD Data Recovered with Data doctor
SSD recovery is very different from a hard drive recovery and requires different tools. This means it needs a specialized process to recover deleted or corrupt files. So, if your SSD drive loses data, immediately turn off your device and call a data recovery company with extensive experience on flash drive recovery to avoid further data loss and damage.
Do not attempt a recovery data procedure on your own as this could result in permanent data loss.
Common Symptoms of SSD Failure
Some common symptoms of Samsung SSD failures include file corruption, repeated file access issues, slow transfer rates, and a large number of bad sectors.
