Causes of USB stick defects and data recovery

If your data has disappeared from the USB stick, this can have various causes. Basically, these malfunctions can be divided into logical, electronic or physical errors. They are always a case for data recovery. If a data carrier with USB is recognized by the computer, but the data is not, there is a logical damage to the controller chip of the stick. An electronic error is present if the flash memory is only occasionally or not at all recognized by the operating system connected via USB. Defective electronic parts are the cause of this. If the stick is damaged externally, there is a physical damage. In all these cases, conventional methods will not help you.

We create an overview of the data that can be recovered. As a customer you will also receive an estimate of the costs for data recovery on the defective USB stick. The price depends on the severity of the damage to the stick. On this basis you can decide whether you want the recovery to be carried out under the conditions. Depending on the nature of the defect, we perform appropriate measures of data recovery USB. If data was accidentally deleted from the stick, it can usually be recovered. For data recovery in case of controller damage, ComputerButler employees remove the memory chips from the stick's housing and read out the data. This procedure works with a flash memory in Nand technology. With a USB stick in monolithic design, however, the data recovery proves to be a much greater challenge. This is because in this memory stick all components, including the controller chip, are integrated in one chip. We then use special procedures for data recovery.

Advantages of professional data recovery USB

If a USB stick is damaged, some people first have the reflex to try a data recovery on their own. A Windows check tool can be used to check the stick for errors in files and sectors. If the USB stick is connected and recognized by the computer as a device, it can be clicked on with the right mouse button. Under "Properties" you will find the tab "Tools". Here you will find the "Error Check", which can be started for correction. For more serious damage to USB sticks, this attempt at data recovery is usually not enough. Users can try to achieve improvements by cleaning the contacts on the stick. However, if these fail to materialize, it is advisable to contact a professional for data recovery USB. A layman is usually able to fix slight software errors of a flash drive, but in complicated cases may even unintentionally 'aggravate' the error. With the USB-equipped memory in mini format, the first attempt often decides on the success of the data recovery. Therefore, we can only recommend that you work with a professional right from the start if the stick is defective. We at ComputerButler Berlin know all types of data recovery from the hard drive to the RAID.

Backup Flash Memory: Data Recovery USB

In everyday life, USB sticks convince with their practical advantages. The flash memory data carriers require little energy and hardly any space. The abbreviation USB for Universal Serial Bus stands for a powerful interface technology for connecting devices to a computer. Therefore USB sticks can be used flexibly and are easily mobile. When it comes to data transfer, there is a wide range of specifications for storage media with USB. While the variants USB 1.0, USB 1.1 and USB 2.0. are hardly up to date, newer standards transfer much more data. The USB 3.0, USB 3.1 and USB 3.2 interfaces achieve data rates of 5, 10 and 20 GBit/s respectively. The latest USB 4 standard aims for 40 GBit/s. Sticks are also available for relatively large amounts of storage (although not comparable to hard drives). Because of the numerous advantages, mass storage devices with USB are often used, even in business. Therefore, data recovery is an important option. This is because USB sticks do not always store data reliably. Their write cycles are limited and components wear out. Thus, the loss of data on the stick can occur suddenly and unexpectedly. For such a case, professional data recovery USB is the ideal solution.
