So many of us depend on Micro SD cards today: if we go away on holiday, we use digital cameras or our phones to chronicle our days; if we want to show family and friends pictures of a new baby, pet, or major purchase (that shiny new car, for example) we snap a picture on our smartphone or tablet and upload it to social media. If we chose to transfer media, we just remove the storage card and insert into another device – we take such convenience for granted, only noticing how wonderful these options are once a problem arises.
There are countless reasons, MicroSD cards can experience performance issues – physical damage, overloading etc. – and you may believe all your files stored within are in danger of vanishing forever. Some people will just toss them and accept defeat, though this could be a huge mistake: you may still be able to access your files again even if the card is dead.
At eProvided, we are one of only a handful of firms across the globe able to expose Micro SD cards’ internal circuitry and run a data bypass (using an electronic Pinout strategy). While most data recovery specialists are likely to tell you files on SD cards cannot be recovered because it’s unrecognized by the device or computer, we know better – we’ve created proven expertise allowing for direct connections into MicroSD card flash memory storage drives. With this direct internal connection we extract & remove data via the microscopic ‘veins’ of the printed circuit board (PCB).
Sound complicated? Don’t worry – we know exactly what we’re doing, and we’ll ensure we recover your data with an absolute minimum of fuss.
Take Care of your SD Cards
To avoid problems with your Micro SD cards, you need to take the best care of them you can. We’ve compiled a list of tips to help you keep them performing at their best.
ONE: Don’t use your Cards when Problems Occur
If you receive a card error message, don’t keep using it – you could cause damage and possibly corrupt any data stored on it. This may be caused by something simple, but it’s still best to get it checked out by professional data recovery experts.
Don’t let your precious images vanish
TWO: Avoid Overloading Cards
While many of us may be guilty of storing too much on our Micro SD cards, you should really avoid it whenever possible – some may begin to experience performance issues if you fill it to maximum capacity. Stay on top of the amount of space you’ve already used, and delete media backed-up elsewhere. Try not to use more than 85% of the card for best performace.
THREE: Transfer Files to Additional Storage
Back your data up
Don’t keep precious files (beloved photos or documents) on your phone: if your handset or your SD card is damaged well beyond repair or recovery, then you’ll lose them. Make sure you back items up to your computer, to external hard drives – you can then rest assured you have them elsewhere.
FOUR: Always Choose Wisely
When buying SD cards, make sure you buy the best you can within your budget and needs: pay attention to class ratings and the capacities – you don’t want to end up with a card unable to process the speeds your favorite (and essential) apps demand. Seek expert advice before you buy.
