Removable Media Recovery

External storage media devices are very common nowadays. We use these storage devices for data storage, or to transfer data between computers. These devices are convenient to carry and offer fast data backup and easy data recovery as compared to other storage devices.

Most commonly used external or removable media devices are Compact Disc (CDs), Digital Versatile Disc (DVDs), Blue Ray Disc, External Hard Drives, USB Pen Drives, USB Flash Drives, SD Cards, Memory Cards, Memory Sticks, Flash Drive, Solid State Drives (SSDs) etc.

Removable storage devices are becoming an essential part of people’s life and they also refer to some portable storage devices. The removable storage media provides a sense of independence to the consumer as they can use and save data anywhere and anytime they want. These storage devices although are portable, easy to use and operate but they have certain demerits thereby more prone to data loss because of physical damage, human errors, virus attack etc.

Data loss/ inaccessible problems are relatively common in case of the removable devices. There can be various reasons that may turn the data inaccessible. Sometimes the computer can’t access any information/data from these portable storage devices, because it may be corrupted due to improper plug-in or plug-out. Other errors like physical corruption, human errors, virus attack, logical corruption etc. can lead to unexpected data loss

Some of the common reasons behind data loss from External storage devices are:

  • Pulling out of the media without shutting it off.
  • Damage to the media by heat or any liquid.
  • Physical damage due to mishandling.
  • Virus or malware attack.
  • Scratches on CD/ DVD.
  • Damage due to electrical surge etc.
  • Accidental deletion of a file or program
  • Misplacement of CDs or Memory sticks
  • Natural disaster, earthquake, flood, etc.

In case you have lost your data from your removable/external storage device because of the above mentioned reasons and you don’t have any back up for important data like photographs, files, and important documents etc., Do Not Panic. The data is still recoverable, with the help of professional data recovery service providers like Stellar. Our data recovery experts have extensive knowledge and ability to recover all your important data from any situation and from any devices.
