NAND Data Recovery Is Possible With eProvided; NAND Flash Memory & SSD Drives Take Over

PARKER, CO--(Marketwire - June 12, 2009) - eProvided, a data recovery company, remembers when 1 GB drives appeared large, with a cost of $395.00. Today 1.5 TB drives fall below $100.00. Welcome Solid State Drives, AKA SSD. SSD drives are blazing-fast, moving data at 700MB-1.5GB/s.

All SSD drives use NAND Flash Memory, small microchips storing data. The product breakthroughs on this type of non-volatile memory are astonishing. Most new laptops, iPhones, iPods, PCI Express storage cards, Digital Voice Recorders, Cell Phones and Digital Camera Memory Cards use NAND flash memory.

The Pros: The next generation of storage, it's fast, no moving parts, tiny and can withstand extreme temperatures (-67F - 300F). The Cons: NAND chips crack or become damaged if not handled properly. All NAND based storage devices can have data recovered in the event of severe damage. If you broke your USB Flash Drive in half losing all data, USB Data Recovery is always a solution. SSD drives, Digital camera memory, iPhones, Cell Phones, and anything with NAND based memory; all are recoverable with NAND data recovery.

Too often manufacturers implement too many NAND flash memory wafers into too small a space, causing too many parts within one device, leaving the device susceptible to damage. In Laymen's terms: why develop a 32GB USB Flash Drive with eight 4GB NAND wafers when one could use a single 32GB wafer? Intel states in 2009 that 32GB TSOP NAND Flash will be available; soon 1TB!

NAND data recovery is the process of reconstructing data from data dumps from multiple sets of NAND wafers and unscrambling complex algorithms. Then, taking the numerous unscrambled files and assembling them into one single disk image; getting end-users files back again.

USB data recovery is the most common type of data recovery needed. Today's Most Common Data Loss Situations: 1) Broken tip off USB thumb drive. 2) "Unknown Device" appearing out of the blue. 3) Loss of functionality. 4) Inserting device into wrong slot.

SSD drives are large and contain numerous NAND chips. eProvided.com founder Bruce Cullen states, "Of the first two SSD data recovery attempts made at eProvided both were a success. There are too many consumers that don't know such a recovery service exists... people need to be properly educated before they lose all the important data they own."
