Solid State Drives

A solid-state drive (SSD) is a type of non-volatile computer storage media that stores information using integrated circuits instead of electromechanical devices as in traditional magnetic disk drives also known as a Hard Disk Drive (HDD). The term solid state refers to the fact that the memory elements are made out of semiconductor materials rather than the earlier technology where moving parts that are more prone to get damaged were used.

However, SSDs are not without their drawbacks. If you accidentally delete files from your computer, you might want to consider recovering deleted files from an SSD. In order to recover lost data from an SSD, you’ll need to perform an SSD data recovery procedure.

For emergencies, contact our SSD Data Recovery experts at CBL Singapore.

Two Types of Solid State Drives

There are 2 types of SSDs. Serial Advanced Technology Attachment SSDs (SATA) and Peripheral Component Interconnect express SSDs or Non-Volatile Memory express SSDs (PCIe/NVMe/PCIe-NVMe)

SATA is the older standard form factor that was first introduced in 2003. SATA SSDs use a serial interface to communicate with the host system. They are commonly found in desktop computers, laptop computers, servers, NAS devices, and embedded systems.

PCI Express is the newer standard form factor which was introduced in 2008. PCIe SSDs have become popular because they are faster than SATA SSDs. PCIe SSDs are commonly found in workstations, notebooks, gaming PCs, and server applications.

The Differences Between an SSD and an HDD

An SSD (Solid State Drive) is a form of non-volatile memory that uses flash memory chips instead of magnetic disks. SSDs store data using solid-state technology rather than traditional spinning platters. SSDs use less power than HDDs, which means they are more efficient at storing large amounts of data.


HDDs are still used by most computer users today. They are much faster than SSDs, but they require more energy to operate. This makes them unsuitable for portable computers such as laptops. However, SSDs are becoming increasingly popular because they are smaller, quieter, and consume less power than HDDs.

11 Common Causes of Failure in SSD

The following are some common causes of failure in SSDs. When an SSD fails, it is best to seek SSD Data Recovery services because retrieving data from an SSD is not the same as retrieving data from an HDD.

For emergencies, contact our SSD Data Recovery experts at CBL Singapore.

1. Controller Chip Damage/Failure

A controller chip is responsible for managing the read/write operations of the NAND Flash memory cells. This chip is usually located inside the enclosure of the SSD disk drive. When it fails, you might experience problems like slow performance and even system crashes.

2. Corrupted or Damaged Firmware

A firmware error occurs when there is a problem in the software stored in the device’s firmware. It may cause the device to randomly reboot, freeze, or perform other functions incorrectly.

3. NAND Chip Degradation

NAND chips degrade over time. They start losing their charge capacity and become unreliable. As soon as this happens, the reliability of the SSD decreases. You will then see errors such as “read failures” and “write failures”

4. Overheating

Overheating is another reason why SSDs fail. The heat generated by the internal components of the SSD increases its temperature. This leads to premature degradation of the NAND flash memory chips.

5. Bad Blocks on NAND Chips

Bad blocks occur due to physical defects in the NAND flash memory chips. These blocks cannot store any data.

6. Physical Damage

Physical damage to the SSD includes scratches, dents, and cracks. These external damages can lead to internal data loss. If you have an SSD, do ensure you do regular backups.

7. Virus Infection

Both SSD and HDD have the potential to get infected with malware that resembles viruses. Some malicious software, such as a kernel rootkit, can be very difficult to get rid of.

8. Hardware Malfunction

Many things can lead to SSD failure, but the most obvious ones are aging, physical harm, and heat. In comparison to a hard disk drive, the latter two elements have a far lesser effect on SSDs. But with time, both HDD and SSD can eventually fail.

9. Frequent Bad-Block Errors

A good rule of thumb for determining whether or not your SSD is failing is to look at how many bad blocks are being reported by the operating system. If there are too many bad blocks, then your SSD is likely failing.

10. SSD is Read-only

It is important to note that even though the SSD is read-only, it may still be able to write new data to other parts of the disk. However, once the SSD becomes completely unusable, all data on the SSD will be lost forever.

11. Various File System Issues

If you see this message when trying to access the contents of the SSD, then the drive is no longer accessible. You can contact CBL Singapore or the manufacturer of the SSD for assistance.

Performing SSD Data Recovery

The process of performing SSD Data Recovery can be very time-consuming and expensive. There are many factors that need to be considered when attempting to recover data from an SSD. These include the type of storage device, the size of the storage device, how long the storage device has been left, and if the storage device was ever formatted.

Guidelines for Performing SSD Data Recovery

Recovering deleted files from an SSD is possible, but it takes a lot of work and expertise. In order to be successful in SSD Data Recovery and recover deleted files from an SSD, let us share with you the guidelines for having a successful data recovery.

1. Identify the Storage Device

Before beginning the SSD Data Recovery process, you must first identify which storage device is affected. To do so, open up Disk Management and locate the partition where the SSD resides. Once located, right-click on the partition and select Properties. From here, you can determine what kind of file system is used on the partition.

2. Determine the Partition Size

Once you know what kind of file system the partition uses, you can determine the exact amount of space available on the partition. For example, if the partition is using FAT32, then the maximum file size would be 4 GB.

3. Perform a Deep Scan

After knowing the partition size, you can perform a deep scan of the partition. A deep scan involves scanning through every single byte of the partition. This allows you to find any hidden partitions, hidden files, and deleted files.

4. Recover Deleted Files

After finding the deleted files, you can now attempt to restore them back onto the original storage device. The best way to do this is to use third-party software.

5. Format the Drive

Finally, after recovering the deleted files, you should format the drive again. This ensures that the drive is clean and ready for future use. To make the process painless and hassle-free, contact CBL Singapore to get a quote on your SSD Data Recovery today.

Have an issue with Encrypted SSD – CBL Singapore is here to help

If you used the built-in encryption feature in Windows, you should be able to access your files from any computer running Windows 7 or later. However, if you encrypted your drive with third-party software, you may need to use specialized SSD Data Recovery tools to recover your data.

Accidentally Deleted Data on My SSD Drive

Before doing anything else, make a backup of any important data that is on the SSD. This way, you won’t lose any more data than is absolutely necessary. The next step is to determine the type of SSD drive you have.

When you delete something from your SSD drive, it does not disappear. It is simply marked as free space. To put it another way, when you delete something from your hard drive, it does not physically move.

When you delete something from your SSD drive, it moves to another location on the drive. So, even though you can’t see it, it’s still there.

Our SSD Data Recovery Process

CBL Data Recovery retrieves data from damaged SSD drives by performing data retrieval operations at two main levels:

Level 1 Solid State Drive Recovery (Mild Data Loss)

At level 1, our SSD data recovery services are mainly focused on repairing the firmware of your hard drive. With years of experience and expertise, we have developed the best practices for recovering damaged firmware.

Furthermore, we have quality software to fix the data loss problem with your SSD. We utilize a sophisticated procedure in which we do not delete the data chips to retain your important files safely. We follow a detailed approach to dealing with all kinds of data restoration problems.

Level 2 Solid State Drive Recovery (Severe Data Loss)

At Level 2, we deal with the more serious cases of data loss. We remove the data chips, make a raw copy of each, and then run an algorithm that the original drive used to prevent memory wear.

Our experts are versed in data structures that are used in determining an algorithm which is a complicated procedure but we can still help you achieve a high success rate in solid state drive data retrieval.

What If My Device Is Still Under Warranty?

You should always check the warranty before purchasing a new storage device. Some companies offer extended warranties on their products. However, these warranties only cover certain types of faults. For example, they might cover mechanical failures, but not electrical issues.

They may also cover the product for a limited period of time. It’s important to read the fine print to make sure you’re covered under the terms of the warranty.

CBL Data Recovery Singapore, we are authorized by many of the world-leading manufacturers to be able to work on and operate on your SSD without voiding the warranty.

My SSD Device is water damaged. Can You Still Recover My Data?

Data can be retrieved even if the device has been damaged by salt water. However, the extent of the damage may determine whether or not data recovery is successful.

Can I Still Recover Data From My Physically Damaged SSD?

If your hard drive is physically damaged, you can still recover the data from it using a professional data recovery service. The process of recovering data from an SSD that has physical damage to its components is more complicated than recovering data from a standard HDD. Based on our experience a damaged NAND Memory is usually not the case.

If Windows Does Not Detect When I Connect My SSD, Am I Able to Recover Data From My SSD?

Yes, you can recover data from your SSD using third party software. However, we recommend using a backup solution that includes both file recovery and system image backups. This way, you can restore all files and settings to a new drive, while also having a copy of your original operating system for future use.

What Happens When SSD Dies?

An SSD drive has no moving parts like a mechanical hard disk drive, which means they don’t wear out. However, when an SSD dies, data stored on the drive cannot be recovered. The only way to recover data from an SSD is to replace the entire drive.

How Long Will a SSD Hold Data?

A solid state drive (SSD) holds data for much longer than a standard hard disk drive (HDD). However, they still have a limited lifespan. The life expectancy of an SSD depends on how often you use it and what kind of usage you put it through. If you do heavy file transfers, delete files frequently, or run multiple applications at once, then you should replace your SSD sooner rather than later.

Will my the data in my SSD be at risk?

Your data is never compromised. An exact copy of the original data on the source drive is made; all recovery attempts are done on the copy. CBL Data Recovery Singapore offers the highest level of protection for private and confidential data.
