Data Recovery Labs specializes in flash media repair and data recovery, offering industry-leading recovery success rates. Utilizing proprietary recovery tools, our experts provide industry-leading support for all flash devices regardless of size, manufacturer or failure cause. Although being fairly durable, as all microelectronic devices flash drives, SD cards and USD thumb drives are susceptible to failure. Sometimes the device does not show up in Device Manager or "USB Device not recognized" message in Windows. Sometimes the device itself might be seen but the volumes or partitions are inaccessible or could not be found. Files might also, appear "unknown" or 0 bytes in size. If you experience data loss, disconnect your flash media as soon as you notice signs of data loss.
If you experience flash drive failure, disconnect the device as soon as you notice signs of data loss and do not attempt to read or repair your media under any circumstances as you can easily cause further and permanent damage. Contact a professional data recovery company to avoid permanent data loss. Data Recovery Labs’ engineers use special software allowing to read raw NAND flash chips and reconstructing the original file system. Oftentimes, recovery requires unsoldering internal NAND chip, creating a clone copy of media and then, utilizing specialized tools and algorithms to restore the data.

Safely Handle Flash Card Media to Prevent Data Loss
Transfer your files
Place the data from your portable flash device to a hard drive as soon as possible. Do not reformat or delete files from the device itself until the data is verified and securely backed up.
Follow the safety instructions
Always remove flash memory from the card reader with extra care. Use the appropriate “Safely Remove Hardware” command on your computer to avoid data corruption prior to physically removing the card.
Confirm file transfer
Open the files on the permanent storage device before deleting them from the portable device.
Back up your files
Protect your files against data loss by backing up to a computer hard drive or the cloud storage.
Physically protect your USB, SD, flash and other memory cards
Use a USB cap or an SD card plastic holder whenever the devices are not in use to protect from breaking and avoid the static discharge. Do not expose your flash device to extreme temperatures as it can damage electronic components of the drive.
