SD cards (and Micro SD cards) are often found in phones, cameras and video cameras and are also a great way of storing data so it can easily be transferred between devices. Far less cumbersome that external hard drives, SD cards are cheaper but have limited storage capacity.
For the purpose of this page, SD and micro SD cards are the same thing.
There are 3 main types of SD (Secure Digital) memory card available, standard (SD), high capacity (SDHC), and extended capacity (SDXC). Recovering the data from a damaged or unresponsive SD card can sometimes be quite complex.
Data Clinic’s SD Card Data Recovery Service
At Data Clinic we use hardware data recovery techniques to retrieve the files from damaged SD cards. These methods are far superior to any software approach – a software program can only do so much as it is controlled by the computer’s operating system which will prohibit and limit certain actions. Using a hardware based data recovery approach means that we have no such limitations.
How Does It Work ?
All you need to do is
- Call us or send us a call back request and we’ll call you
- We’ll speak and confirm what the problem is with your SD card and discuss the chances of recovery
- You post the SD card to us or drop if off at one of our UK locations
- We’ll recover the data from your SD card to a memory stick or encrypt it and securely upload it to a file share that you can then download your recovered data from.
- The whole process typically takes 7 – 10 working days on our standard data recovery service. We can recover the data quicker but it’s more expensive.
