DATA RECOVERY company Kroll Ontrack has seen a 70 per cent increase in 
the requests for recovering data from flash media in the last year.

These increasing requests weren’t initially met with the right 
technology, meaning to the development of the capability to recover data 
from both flash media and solid-state disk (SSD) was a priority.

The amount of people asking for data recovery seems to have increased as 
the damage to these devices becomes more possible.

The two most common causes of damage to these devices are either a power 
interruption to the device causing electronics failure and/or data 
corruption or, the more probable cause, clumsy office workers sitting on 
the device or causing physical damage in some other way.
