SSD Data Recovery Singapore
SSD data recovery is the service required when your solid state drive (SSD) fails unexpectedly. SSD drives are quiet and more reliable compared to the normal hard drive. They have no moving parts and data are stored in arrays of flash memory chips.
The flash memory uses electric charges to retain data when the SSD is turned off. They do wear out over time when large amount of data are rewritten into the drives. Eventually these SSDs will fail as there are limited number of writes on a cell for every solid-state drive during its lifetime. Therefore it is important to remind SSD users to back up their data regularly as there are also chances that they may fail prematurely.
SSDs are growing in popularity for these advantages:
- Form Factor: SSD are smaller in size, weighs lighter and more portable
- Speed: SSD are much faster which are better for high performance demanding systems
- Quiet Operation: SSD are more stable and are non-mechanical with no movable parts
- Power: SSD consume less power and the portable laptop battery can last longer for each charge
- Reliability: SSD are robust and their failure rates are lower
- Capacity: Storage bytes of SSD are getting larger and larger
- Price: Memory storage cost per byte for SSD is getting cheaper and cheaper
As such SSD adoption has multiplied many folds and the need of SSD data recovery has also grown in tandem.
When the SSD has problems and the data is not readable, these tips can be helpful for you to find out the causes and potentially fix it before seeking professional help.
- Go to the S.M.A.R.T tool of the SSD and note down any amber or red alerts next to each performance metric. It will tell you the SSD problems and the types of issues detected
- Next, backup the data if possible before proceeding further
- For portable SSD, safely eject it from the computer and test it on another Mac or PC
- Check and update the SSD driver if required and reboot to see whether it is working
- Find out whether the firmware is out-dated and needs update from the SSD manufacturer
If however the solid-state drive is still not readable, then it is best to call for professional assistance to increase your chances of a successful recovery.
Recovery of data from failed or dead SSD is not for the faint-hearted as these are commonly encrypted and have proprietary algorithms on-board the chips. Furthermore, laptop manufacturers could have the SSD built onto the motherboard which then makes it impossible to remove and increase the complexity for data recovery.

What is inside a Solid State Drive?
The SSD drive consists mainly of a printed circuit board with multiple memory chips (NAND Flash), controllers and other components on-board the PCB. Within each NAND flash are millions of cells and each cell can contain 1, 2, 3 or 4 bits of data or information. Hence SLC, MLC, TLC and QLC are the 4 common types of cells technology used in SSD today.
Any parts on-board the SSD printed circuit can malfunction due to faulty controllers, NAND flash damage or power surges. Other types of SSD failure could be due to corruption of firmware.
5 Signs of Failing SSDs
Unlike hard disk drive failure, there is no clicking sound of any sort from a failing solid state drive in laptops, NAS and RAID servers. So, having a SSD monitoring tool is a good way to be alerted of any potential operating issues.
When the SSD drives are in operation,
- Bad blocks errors are found when it reads or writes
- Slow access and frequent errors during file transfer
- Files can no longer be written or read; often files can be read only
- During booting up the system crashes unexpectedly
- Repeated file systems issues occur and need repair
If you experience any of these signs, stop whatever you are doing and quickly backup your data files in the SSD if you still can.
In the event you had a SSD failure, the first thing to do is to shut down the laptop or computer systems. This is to contain the issues and prevent it from worsening which could lead to permanent loss of data.
