This video details our Flash Drive/Chip-Off data recovery process and rates.
In some cases, we can access the bad device using special reading modes to recover your data without removing the chip(s). If these special reading methods fail, the only remaining option is a “chip-off” recovery. A “monolith” recovery is basically the same as a “chip-off” recovery, except that all “chips” are embedded within one device.
If you have a Surface Pro 5, Pro 6, or Pro 7, we charge an up-front/non-refundable $75 “chip removal fee” to remove the eMMC chip from the motherboard. If you have a different machine with an eMMC chip instead of an SSD (e.g., some Asus and Lenovo laptops), we may charge $75 to remove the chip, depending on the difficulty.
We charge $300 for all Monolith devices (the same as for MicroSDs) if we recover 99% or more data. If less than 99% was recovered, and you don’t want the data we recovered, there is a $100 labor fee. If the recovery is not successful, there is no charge.
On the left, you can see an eMMC chip recovery from a Lenovo Ideapad 130S. In this case, the computer was damaged due to a drop. We had to use a BGA rework station to remove the tiny eMMC chip which stored all the customer’s data. Then we used a tool called “Z3X EasyJtag” to read the chip and additional software to extract the customer’s data.
This includes Ace Laboratory’s PC3000-Flash, Rusolut’s VNR, Z3X EasyJtag, and Flash Extractor. We also have many Multi-com adapters for MicroSD cards which enable us to recover data quicker than other companies who manually solder in leads to interface with MicroSD cards.
Can we recover your failed hard drive, SSD, flash drive, or RAID?
