Flash memory is far more advanced than traditional magnetic storage such as hard drives. Successful flash and SSD data recovery requires the latest equipment and training in this area—that’s where Aceon comes in.
Almost every portable data storage device today relies on NAND flash memory to do its job. You can find NAND chips inside your SSD, your phone, your thumb drive, and your memory cards. You can even find a NAND chip augmenting some of your traditional spinning-platter hard drives.
At Aceon, we have flash and SSD data recovery experts who can assist you with your needs, regardless of the device.
“Flash” media stores data quite differently from the way your hard drive does. There are no spinning disks or moving parts that store data magnetically; instead, the data is stored electronically on non-moving chips of non-volatile RAM.
When you plug a USB flash drive into your computer or boot up a PC that runs on a SSD, what you see on your computer looks the same as what you’d see on a hard disk drive. However, the way NAND flash memory devices store data is very, very different on a fundamental level.
Most flash memory devices you see today store your data on a NAND memory chip. But what does “NAND” mean? NAND actually refers to the Boolean logic operator NOT AND. What does this have to do with data storage, though? We digitize data by making it binary; e.g. true vs false or zero vs one, because a circuit can either have sufficient power flowing through it or not. NAND logic is used to set up a particular type of gate in a circuit, and this circuit forms the basis for the most commonly-used forms of flash memory today.
Flash memory is a form of non-volatile random-access memory, which is a fancy way of saying all the data on the device doesn’t vanish when you take away its supply of power. Random-access memory, or RAM, has always been much faster than other forms of data storage. It takes the same amount of time to read and write data to and from any area of a RAM chip, but with direct-access memory, including hard disk drives, CDs, and DVDs, the time it takes to read and write data depends on the physical location of the data on the media.
