We can recover data from almost all brands of USB Thumb Drives. Whether important documents or pictures have been accidentally deleted, formatted or the USB thumb drive is malfunctioning and not recognized by your computer. The majority of USB thumb drives failures are due to physical damage of the USB connector or a malfunctioning internal controller. In most cases data recovery software will be unable to recover any data due to the physical failure of the USB drive itself and its components. Our proprietary techniques allow us to extract your data directly from the NAND memory chip and thereby recover your data with a high success rate.
“I am glad to have ‘found’ Data Analyzers. When we needed HELP the most… You did what you said you would and got everything back, it was like working with CSI, you were very thorough, thanks. I know there is no guarantee but you did it, Thank you.”
- Phil Kimmel, CEO, Laser Magic
We have successfully recovered financial documents, movies, and photo collections for photographers, students and teachers, and even law enforcement.

What actually is a USB Flash drive and how does it work?
USB thumb drives were first introduced in 2000 by a joint venture between Trek Technology and IBM. The original storage size was a mere 8MB, a paltry size compared to the 128-256GB thumb drives that are available today.
They are very similar to SD cards as they share many of the same components and work the same way. They usually consist of an electronic board (PCB) with several SMD components mounted to the board. Most importantly the NAND chip and the controller chip. The NAND chip is where your data actually resides in digital form (1’s and 0’s). The Controller chip can be considered the brain of the USB thumb drive since it among other things is in control of accessing and transferring data to and from the NAND chip. To further understand the complexity of data recovery from USB Thumb Drives and other NAND storage technologies it is vital to understand that the controller chips use complex algorithms to store your data on the actual NAND chip. A vast variety of storage controllers and an even greater variety of possible configurations exist, for how data blocks are aligned on the storage chip. Especially when dealing with unknown configurations, it can further complicate the recovery process. Therefore to obtain the greatest possible success rate, we highly recommend seeking out trained and experienced Flash Recovery Experts for the salvaging of your data.
Data Analyzers can successfully recover data from all common USB Flash including, but not limited to, the following manufacturers and models: Adata, Centon, Corsair, Crucial, Dane-Elec, EMTEC, Fusion I/O,HP, Intel, Itwin, LaCie, Lexar, Kingston, Mushkin, Patriot, Plextor, PNY, OCZ, SanDisk, Sony, STEC, Super Talent, TDK, Team, Texas Memory Systems, Transcend, Verbatim, Wintec, as well as rebranded, novelty, or rebranded USB Thumb Drives.
