Flash and SSD Data Recovery Training Course Available In Portugal September

Flash and SSD data recovery is one of the most difficult data recovery cases in engineers’ data recovery labs and we have put this kind of data recovery cases to the level 3-stage data recovery, especially when you are going to deal...

 

Recover Data From SSD Drives

Recover Data From SSD Drives

SSD, solid state disks, are becoming increasingly popular among users for their quick access times and high read and write rates which allow computers to load an operating system and programs far more quickly than traditional spinning hard drives....

 

Block and sector headers

Block and sector headers

The memory is divided in 128 blocks of 64 kb each. A block starts with a 76 bytes block header, which holds information about the block. The rest of the block contains data sectors and sector headers. Each data sector has a 27 bytes wide header...

 

File System Analysis on USB Memory Sticks

File System Analysis on USB Memory Sticks

The flash file systems on USB memory sticks are usually relatively simple mechanisms that only translate the Logical Block Number used in high level file systems to a low level physical address and do not support wear levelling. In the file...

 

FILE SYSTEM ANALYSIS

FILE SYSTEM ANALYSIS Data acquisition results in one or more binary files containing linear bitwise copies of flash memory data. Before any volume analysis and succeed ing file system analysis can take place, the sectors of data as used by the...

 

How to prepare a chip for further processing

How to prepare a chip for further processing

How to prepare a chip for further processing: Pins of a TSOP chip can be cleaned with solder wick and flux remover. Make sure that the pins are nicely aligned and no old solder is left behind on the pins. If a micro BGA chip is removed from...

 

How to remove TSOP chips and micro BGA chips

How to remove TSOP chips and micro BGA chips

De-soldering of flash memory chips: Most chips are packed in a TSOP or micro BGA casing nowadays. This article discusses methods to remove these chips because special de-soldering equipment is needed for de-soldering to prevent damaging of chips...

 

Flash memory data recovery tools

Flash memory data recovery tools

The most easy and non-invasive way to read flash data is by using a simple hardware interface and software that copies all flash memory data from the target system to another system for further analysis. Unfortunately there’s no general method...

 

Flash Memory Logical Characteristics

Flash Memory Logical Characteristics

There are several ways in which flash memory can be used as file storage in embedded systems. Three of them are explainedbelow.As implified diagram of components involved in host Operating System (OS) access to a flash file system is shown in...

 

Flash memory Physical Characteristics

Flash memory Physical Characteristics

The physical mechanism to store data in flash memory is based on storing electrical charge into a floating gate of a transistor. This charge can be stored for extended periods of time without using an external power supply but gradually it will...
