SimpleTech Data Recovery


SimpleTech was founded as Simple Technology in 1990 by two brothers from Iran. They primarily manufactured flash storage solutions, in both solid state hard drives and USB devices. The name was shortened to SimpleTech in 2001. In 2004, they introduced the SimpleShare, a NAS system. Shortly after, their first Ferrari designed external hard drive made its debut. Though the business was doing well, the company made the decision to focus more on industrial and business needs, resulting in the sale of their consumer products to Fabrik. Fabrik continued producing devices under the SimpleTech name, but was purchased by Hitachi in 2009.

 Common Problems

SimpleTech SimpleDrives will typically notify you when the hard drive is failing via a blinking light. While not all of these will give you a warning, you will be able to detect other failures. They can suffer from logical or physical issues just as other drives. Most SimpleTech products will be SSDs, so you won’t be able to hear any clicking to ticking noises, but they will most likely just fail to mount or be detected by the computer. Firmware problems, viruses, malware and any other malicious software can corrupt the stored data and prevent the drive from booting or accessing files. If you are experiencing any of these problems, shut down your device and call!
