Common USB Memory Stick Storage Issues:
USB memory sticks are a small, easy transportable and convenient method of storing information on the move for retrieval later. However with this technology there are some drawbacks; most notably their size which can lead to damage and an untimely end in accidental circumstances. With this in mind we here at www.miltonkeynesdatarecovery.co.uk can help you recover your data should your USB memory stick become damaged either accidentally or through failure as a result of general wear and tear.
USB Stick Storage Problems Caused by Physical Damage:
Just as with memory cards one of the main reasons for damage to USB memory sticks is their size; or rather lack of it. These handy little devices can be easily stepped on, dropped from a height, exposed to the elements or in very rare circumstances (and it has been known) literally washed. All this means to the casual user a portable storage device destroyed and the data contained therein lost.
USB Stick Electronic Storage Problems:
With a USB memory stick there are very small components that allow for the storage of the data you want to keep. These components go to make up a flash memory chip (also known as EEPROM or NAND) which help to convert your information into compressed binary made up of literally hundreds of thousands of 0s and 1s. Some of these components are so small that if bent out of shape or damaged are non repairable and thus leave the stick unreadable if attached to a USB port.
Unnecessary or Inadvertent Deletion of Data on Your USB Stick:
The age old problem of accidentally deleting information applies as much to USB memory sticks as it might to hard drives. Regardless of how careful we are there is still the chance that we might inadvertently delete the contents of your memory stick while attempting to delete something else. With this in mind we at www.miltonkeynesdatarecovery.co.uk can recover the data on your USB memory stick providing you have not tried to save addition information to it since the original was deleted. We have up to the minute software that allows for the recovery of lost data from memory sticks and we can also offer you an alternative method of storage should you wish
Your Computers Inability to Read or Recognise Data on Your USB Stick:
You may find yourself unable to access your USB stick using your own computer or anyone else’s for that matter. This can happen if the USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 adapter into which the NAND flash chip has been placed has been damaged either by being physical bent out of shape or by coming away from the internal pins that send the information to and from the chip. At www.miltonkeynesdatarecovery.co.uk we can recover this data using sophisticated hardware and software that allows us to access the flash memory chip inside the memory stick even if the casing or the USB adapter have been damaged beyond repair.
