As recover data from faulty SSD

1 year, 10 months ago
I welcome all Habrovchan!

I suggest to talk a little today about recovery of information from faulty SSD drives. But for a start, before we will get acquainted with technology of rescue of precious kilograms - mega-and gigabyte, I ask to pay attention to the provided chart. On it we have tried to locate the most popular SSD models according to probability of successful data recovery from them.


As it is easy to guess, with the drives located in green zone usually arises least of all problems (provided that the engineer possesses necessary tools, certainly). And drives from red zone are capable to bring many sufferings to both their owners, and engineers reducers. In case of failure of similar SSD chances to return back the lost data are too small today. If your SSD is located in red zone or near it, I would advise to do backup before each toothbrushing.

Those who has made backup, welcome under kat already today.

Everything that is sewed by back-breaking toil. About use of the free Arcserve UDP version in life

1 year, 10 months ago


Always unpleasantly, having turned on the computer, to understand that the hard drive on which important data and favourite photos for some last years were stored, does not give life signs any more. Or to realize that the notebook which is precipitately left in car luggage carrier for minute was gone, having carried away with itself work of the last months.

The recipe from such troubles is thought up long ago: store data in several copies in different places (TWO cigarette cases of gold, TWO movie cameras import?). Naturally, manually to make copies of data? it not our method. First, laziness. Secondly, it is possible to forget that copied, and that did not copy. And when it was done by the last time.

For us these cares can assume programs of backup. But they or cost money (which for the home computer in general are spent for software with scratch), or, being free, can stop suddenly the development and in general existence.

Not so long ago the list of free means of data backup for personal computers was replenished with one more? Arcserve UDP product. More precisely, its free edition for workstations (read? for computers with Windows 7, 8, 8.1). We receive product of industrial quality, but with slightly cut down functionality. Running forward, I will tell that that in general can be hardly demanded the house is cut down.

As (in the previous reincarnations) I am familiar with this product long ago, I will dare to tell how with its help to protect the house data from loss.
