SD/MicroSD/Monolith Recovery

This video details our Flash Drive/Chip-Off data recovery process and rates.

2019 update: We no longer charge an attempt fee for monolith data recoveries!

If your SD card, MicroSD, Monolith device, or CF/CFast card has failed, typically the only option is a “chip-off” (monolith) recovery. Though, in some cases, we can access the bad device using special reading modes to recover your data without removing the chip(s).

If your these special reading methods fail, the only remaining option is a “Monolith” recovery (see photos below). A “monolith” recovery is basically the same as a “chip-off” recovery, except that all “chips” are embedded within one device.

 

Chip-off Data Recovery Rates

We charge $300 per flash chip if we recover 99% or more data. We also charge a $100 attempt fee per chip if you do not want the data we were able to recover (if less than 99% was recovered). If more than 99% was recovered, there is no option to decline our recovery.

  • Most SD cards contain one or two flash memory/data chips.
  • Most CF/CFast cards contain two or four flash memory/data chips.

Monolith Data Recovery Rates

We charge $300 for all Monolith devices (like MicroSDs and some USB flash drives) 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. 

We use the best-in-class tools for Monolith and Chip-off data recovery

This includes Ace Laboratory’s PC3000-Flash, Rusolut’s VNR, and Flash Extractor. We also have many Multi-com adapters for MicroSD cards which enable us to recover data quicker than other companies who must manually solder in leads to interface with MicroSD cards. 

We can recover from SD/MicroSD/Monolith/CF/CFast devices with the following problems (and more):

  • Bricked drive
  • Dead drive
  • Firmware corruption
  • Partition corruption
  • Logical failure
  • Failed or corrupt controller
  • Drive has wrong model number or capacity in BIOS

Can we recover your failed hard drive, SSD, flash drive, or RAID?
