SD Card Data Recovery

Data Lab can recover data from all types of SD Card failures. SD cards are prone to multiple types of failures due to their mobility and repeated use SD cards can suffer from physical damage to the connector or circuitry. SD Cards are also known to fail internally due to their poor manufacturing quality. Most vendors use sub par components in these inexpensive storage devices. Data Lab has a highly advanced set of hardware and other tools built to work with SD cards, this work often involves removing the polymer covering the circuitry and extremely precise micro soldering to specific points in order to manually extract the data. Performing this work often involves digital reconstruction of the data due the proprietary technology implemented by vendors. Data Lab is able to recover data from even the most severely damaged or corrupt SD Cards.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why did my SD Card quit working?

SD Cards are prone to multiple types of failures. This can be from repeated use over time that can create issues such as loose or broken or worn down pads or components, electrical faults such as a short circuit or power surge and even firmware or internal faults. Due to the low cost of SD Cards many manufactures use low quality or poorly made components that fail over time. All these faults can be the cause of your failed SD Card. Data Lab can quickly and safely identify what fault your SD Card is suffering from and the best possible path to data recovery.

Data Recovery pricing can vary and is dependent on factors such as the model, its age, size and type of failure experienced. The good news is that our recovery prices are no data - no fee, this means that you only pay if you are satisfied with the results.

Will you be able to recover data from my SD Card?

In most scenarios complete or partial data recovery is possible from SD Cards. The chances of a successful outcome are dependent on factors such as the type of failure, the amount of data, the brand / model and its age. While some rare cases of SD Cards are unrecoverable our advanced tools, expertise and experience allows us to achieve the highest success rates.

Can I Recover Data from my SD Card myself

There are many companies offering some form of data recovery software online, others may read some "do-it-yourself" tricks online like "stick it in the freezer" or "give it a bump on your desk". We highly advise anyone that values their data to not attempt the methods above. The simple fact is that unless you are experienced you can and often will make the situation worse. We advise anyone who has a failed storage device to turn off power and bring it to Data Lab for a free diagnosis.
