#1 Rated SD Card Recovery Company

SD cards have become a popular and affordable option for digital storage. An SD Card is a small flash memory card designed to provide high-capacity memory in a small size. Secure Digital (SD) cards are commonly found in phones, tablets, cameras, and other mobile devices and have capacities of up to 2TB. SD cards conform to standards developed and maintained by the Secure Digital Association. The SD storage family comprises four different formats- SDSC, SDIO, SDHC, and SDXC. All these formats offer great storage features but all are vulnerable to data loss.

SD cards differ from Micro SD cards in terms of physical size. The SD cards use monolithic chip designs and are more rugged than traditional storage media. At Platinum Data Recovery, our engineers are adept to recover data from SD cards used in DSLR, MILC, smartphone, compact digital camera, etc. As an experienced SD card data recovery company, we can recover data from all branded SD cards such as Lexar, SanDisk, Kingston, Sony, Samsung, and many more.

Causes & Symptoms of Damaged SD Cards

SD cards are usually tucked away discretely in the devices which make them less vulnerable to physical damage than USB flash drives. Also, unlike a hard disk drive, SD cards can survive a fall. But this doesn’t mean that SD cards are safe from data loss. These cards may suffer data loss due to several reasons. For instance, an SD card can get damaged due to a power surge when plugged into a device. The other most common causes of data loss from SD cards are-

  • Hardware failure
  • Accidental deletion of data
  • Physical damage to the card
  • Accidental Formatting
  • Data Corruption
  • Memory Wear

If you notice any issue with your SD card, do not experiment with it. Experimenting with your SD cards may lead to permanent data loss.

SD Card Data Loss

As one of the most popular storage media, SD memory cards are used in a multitude of applications. These memory cards allow us to access data at high speed. However, the memory chips are vulnerable to issues like degradation, controller failure, and power surges. If you are facing a data loss situation, you will find hundreds of DIY tutorials on the internet and many data recovery software. But if you don’t have domain knowledge and skills, any DIY option may further damage the card and result in permanent data loss. So, the best option is to seek the assistance of a certified data recovery service provider.

SD cards have no moving parts so the data recovery process involves the removal and direct interrogation of the memory chip. The causes of SD card failure can be categorized into- physical damage, logical failure, and both physical and logical failure.

Physical Damages & Logical Failure

SD cards are robust and waterproof. However, improper handling can damage the card. Also, the card may get water-damaged if put in water for a long time. Some of the SD card error messages which indicate a physical failure include-

  • SD card is not detected
  • SD card is not initialized
  • Card Has Unsupported File System
  • Damaged SD card try reformatting
  • SD Card Is Blank
  • SD card error “0 Bytes”

Logical Failure occurs due to issues like virus attack, deleted, or formatted data. These types of failures occur if the file system is inaccessible. In case of logical failure, you may receive error messages like-

  • [Drive]:\ is not accessible
  • CHKDSK is not available
  • File is missing or unread files
