USB Flash Drive Repair & Data Recovery Service

Flash drives are a simple, convenient way to back up important data, but are also susceptible to failure.

USB flash drives are more accessible, more portable, and more immune to failure than traditional media storage devices. Unfortunately, this enhanced immunity is a double-edged sword: it makes the process of recovering data from a failed USB flash drive much more difficult. Here at ASAP Data Recovery Services, we have engineers who dedicate their time exclusively to USB flash drive data recovery. We pledge that if we can’t recover the data off of your damaged USB flash drive, nobody can.

The two most essential components of USB flash drives are “flash memory chips” and “mass storage controllers.” “Flash memory chips” are where your actual data is stored; they function by manipulating a series of transistors with electrical currents and have no moving parts, which makes them less prone to sustaining damage due to physical abuse. “Mass storage controllers” are responsible for allowing a drive to communicate with computers. If the “mass storage controller” of a USB flash drive is damaged, the drive will no longer function and requires the attention of USB flash drive data recovery experts.

Some USB flash drives (especially PNY-branded drives) are “monolithic.” In a “monolithic” USB flash drive, all the internal components of the device, including the “flash memory chip” and the “mass storage controller,” are combined into one single chip. Recovering data from a “monolithic” USB flash drive is immensely difficult, as the plastic surface of the chip must first be removed with an abrasive to expose its circuits. This is a very delicate process where a single mistake can result in permanent data loss.

All the internal components of the “monolithic” USB flash drive pictured above are contained within the black chip next to it.
