Compared to its sibling - the Hard Disk Drive (HDD), Solid State Drive (SSD) features several advantages. First and foremost are its speed and reliability. Since SSD has no moving mechanical parts, it should be less likely to fail, isn’t it?

However, there’s no such thing as a crash-proof hard drive, even if it’s the almighty SSD. Years of users’ experience suggests that both HDD and SSD are equally reliable, and unreliable.

It means that you should and must always prepare for the day when your SSD fail. When that time comes, what can you do to recover your data from dead/failed SSD with professional SSD data recovery?

How SSD Drives Fail?

If there are no mechanical components that wearing down over time, how can an SSD crash? The answer is everything else. There are the electronic components that could die such as the capacitors, power supply, or controller chip, etc. And since SSD is all about electronics and not mechanics, it is more prone to power surge fails than the HDD one.

Some people mention read/write cycles, but this factor is virtually insignificant because an SSD could last over a decade even if you write 100 GB of data per day.

The rule of thumb is, the more aged your SSD is, the more likely it’s to crash.

Can You Recover Data From a Failed SSD Drive?

All HDD users are all too familiar with the warning grinding and buzzing sound the precedes the death of their beloved spinning storages. That sound equals time to save your precious data and find an HDD replacement while you can. But SSD is more of the quiet type. Since it’s all electronics, there’s no warning before the crash. One second it’s working, the next it’s not.

To make things worse, experts from storage recovery company state that “solid-state technology represents an entirely new set of engineering problems to research teams at data recovery organizations”. However, you could try to scrap what’s left using data recovery software or data recovery service.
