We spend most of our day recovering hard drives, but occasionally we get flash storage in as well. Flash drives, SD card, etc. This time around we saved the day for a wedding photographer from Cape Town who lost the data from a recent shoot. See how we recovered all of her data and put a smile back on her face.

SSD drives can also fail like regular hard drives. Data recovery is also possible, but rather be safe and backup your data.
