The Data Rescue Center offers leading data recovery services on solid-state drives aka SSDs including Fusion and Hybrid drives. A relatively new form of hard drive technology, SSDs are more reliable and more robust than conventional rotational disk based hard drives, simply due to the lack of moving parts within the SSD.
Solid State Drives are similar to flash thumb drives and media cards, which also use solid-state technology. However, an SSD, as well as a Fusion or Hybrid drive, is more complex, using an advanced controller to operate the drive. These drives are offered as an option in many high-end laptops because of their hardiness, reliability, and speed.
In Emergency situations we offer a Rush and Emergency Diagnosis options for an additional fee. The Rush Diagnosis will be performed same day as the day we receive the drive, while the Emergency Diagnosis will be within two hours of our technicians receiving the drive.
The Data Rescue Center recovers data from any SSD including Hybrid and Fusion Drives.

The solid-state drive is touted as being tougher than standard hard drives because there are no platters or other moving parts; it is not as susceptible to damage from bumps, jarring, and drops. SSD drives are still a mechanical/electronic device, and drive failure can still occur, both logically and physically.
Fusion Drives, as well as Hybrid drives, are a combination of an SSD and a standard rotational hard drive. Primarily these drives are setup to have the more critical system files on the SSD while using the standard rotational drive as storage space for user files. These drives create a RAID between the two parts of the drive, and will appear as a single drive within your system. With these drives being in a RAID they have the chance to develop the same issues that would occur in a RAID, such as firmware corruption or the RAID being broken.
The SSD data recovery process is different from that of a platter drive recovery. The process can be more complex and involved. You’ve trusted The Data Rescue Center, based in Livermore, California, with your critical data recovery needs on standard drives. Now you can rest assured that we will bring the same quality work, expertise, and customer care to your SSD recovery as well.
The Data Rescue Center has the authorization and expertise to open and perform an SSD data recovery on any solid state drive, from any manufacturer, in our certified ISO 5 Class 100 Cleanroom Lab.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Solid State Drive (SSD)?
A Solid State Drive is a storage device that uses a combination of many flash based storage chips (NAND) chips, meaning there are no moving parts on the drive.
Are SSDs more reliable than a regular hard drive?
Since SSDs do not have any moving parts, they are less susceptible to physical damage due to impacts or other shocks to the device. They do still have limitations, and are not a completely risk-free storage solution.
If there are no moving parts, what causes a drive failure?
These devices are not fail-proof as electronic issues can still occur, and the devices have a maximum number of times data can be read/written to/from the device. Once this limit is reached, the drive will no longer be useable.
How can I tell if I have an SSD or just a regular drive?
One of the simplest ways to determine if you have an SSD or a regular hard drive is to listen to the device. Standard rotational hard drives typically have a small audible sound as the hard drive platters spin inside the device. SSDs do not have any such sounds. Other ways to see if you have an SSD include checking your computer specifications.
Why Choose The Data Rescue Center
In many cases, normal off-the-shelf SSD data recovery will not be able to perform data retrieval on these advanced drives. Deep scans with a more advanced software program are necessary. A recovery engineer using the software must also be able to interpret the somewhat cryptic results, a skill acquired through advanced training. Fortunately, The Data Rescue Center’s commitment to our valued clients means that we go the extra mile and make sure that our recovery engineers have the training and the tools to recover these advanced drives.
The Data Rescue Center, along with our parent company, Prosoft Engineering, is committed to bringing you the best service available, no matter what data media you have. Prosoft, one of the leading data recovery experts and software developers in the world, helps provide the knowledge and resources to get the job done.
