FAT32 Data Recovery

FAT32 is the most popular version of the FAT (File Allocation Table) format created by Microsoft in 1977. Since it was used on one of IBM’s top-selling computers, the format is among the most popular for all computer drives and flash data devices. However, any data storage format can fail, which can put your data at risk. If your FAT32 device fails, the qualified experts at Drive Data Recovery can help recover your data.

Identifying the cause of your data loss is the first step our experts take during the free diagnosis of your FAT32 device. Once we have identified the cause, we can select the best method to recover your data. You will receive a diagnostic report that details the cause and provides an up-front quote on the cost to recover your data and the time required for the recovery process.

Several types of damage can cause data loss on your FAT32 device, but the three fundamental types of failure are logical drive failure, electrical drive failure, and mechanical drive failure.

Logical drive failure, or corruptions to your storage data, can occur to storage media on any device, either due to data corruption internally or when you unplug or power off the device incorrectly.

Electrical drive failure, or damage from electrical surges, can cause data loss and permanently damage your device. While many drives have built-in protections against surges, faulty hardware, cables, power outages, and even electrical strikes can still cause electrical drive failure.

Mechanical drive failure, or physical damage to your device, can occur after a drop or spill, or simply due to aging. Hard drives are more prone to physical damage, but any hardware can suffer from mechanical drive failure.
