Samsung Data Recovery


Samsung is a South Korean company that was founded in 1938. While they have had a diverse company background, they are well known for their electronics, which they dove into in the late 1960’s. Their first product had been a black-and-white television.

In 1980, Samsung began to see a great deal of growth with their electronics. It began with them acquiring a telecommunications company, which later became their primary location for developing mobile phones. After the death of the founder and the separation of the company, they adopted the name Samsung Electronics and began to establish a plan to jump to become the leading edge of the electronics industry. Multiple television assembly plants were opened world-wide to begin production. By 1992, they were the largest producer of memory chips in the world, and in 2005 they became the world’s largest producer of LCD panels.

In 2011, their hard disk drive business was sold to Seagate, but that didn’t slow them down. In 2012 they became the largest mobile phone producer in the world. They did have a few bumps when they were responsible for $1.05 billion to Apple for violating patents on their smartphone technology. Though Apple tried to ban the sales of those models, it was denied.  In 2014 they invested into building a chip plant in their home of South Korea, even though the type of chip has not been decided as of yet.

Common Problems

The most common issue apparent for Samsung drives are burnt PCB’s (Printed Circuit Boards). This is typically caused by overheating or power surges. Occasionally a bad power supply can contribute, but they seem prone to the problem already. More than likely, you will be able to smell burning. If this is the case, shut down the device immediately. Occasionally they may suffer from logic failures and acquire corrupted files, viruses and malware causing the drive to not show on your desktop/laptop or failing to boot up the pc. If any unusual noise are heard such as clicking, ticking or buzzing, turn off the drive immediately and call us. This is usually the sound of the read/write head touching the platters which will cause further damage and possible data loss.
