Causes of SD Card Data Loss & Failure
Identifying the cause of your data loss is the first step our experts take during the free diagnosis of your SD card. 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.
While data loss can occur because of a range of issues or accidents, the three fundamental types of damage that cause SD card data loss are logical drive failure, electrical drive failure, and physical damage.
Logical drive failure, or corruptions to your storage data, can occur when the device is improperly disconnected or shut down while the SD card is in use. This can make your data inaccessible or invisible.
Electrical drive failure can occur if a surge of electricity hits your SD card. Faulty chargers or cables, power outages, and lightning storms can all cause electrical damage, putting your data at risk.
Physical damage to your device, is a particular problem for SD cards in mobile devices. Phones are especially prone to drops and spills or other types of physical damage that can cause data loss.
