Why Camera Memory Cards May Fail:
With photographs being an excellent way to document different experiences and events, more and more of us are now using camera memory cards to back up those special photographs. However, camera memory cards in particular are very delicate and it’s not uncommon for a small piece of hardware like this to become damaged and unusable. If a memory card is dropped, damaged through general wear and tear, exposed to direct sunlight or experiences a formatting error, you may end up losing all data stored on the card. At Swansea Data Recovery, we can use our expert knowledge base to help you recover those valuable photographs.
Physical Storage Problems On A Camera Memory Card:
If not looked after properly, your camera memory card can experience a read/write issue whereby you are unable to access any of the photographs or data stored on your card. Damaged chips, breakages through mishandling or general wear and tear can all lead to you losing your valuable data, or at the very least, render the data inaccessible. At Swansea Data Recovery, we use specialist tools which allow us to recover any data, and with 15+ years’ experience we pride ourselves on being able to do this successfully.
An Electronics Malfunction On Your Camera Memory Card:
Power surges can have a very damaging impact on your camera memory card and unfortunately, can cause you to experience a loss of data. This is usually due to a jolt of high voltage to your device and as a camera memory card is very delicate and intricate, an overload of electricity may cause your card to become damaged and data to be lost. In some cases, the oxide layer on a camera memory card can burn out and melt. If this is something that you have experienced, get in touch and we will talk you through the most effective way to recover your lost data.
Accidental Deletion Of Data:
It’s an unfortunate fact that from time to time, we lose data due to human error. This could be due to clicking the wrong button, or accidentally reformatting the data to a state where it can’t be retrieved. Experts at Swansea Data Recovery are proud to hold a successful track record in recovering data lost in this form. Even if you have accidentally deleted everything on your camera memory card, we will use cutting edge technology to safely and successfully recover your data. While there are many software packages available that claim to salvage your lost data, they can in fact damage your memory card more so causing the data to become irretrievable.
Losing Data Due To An Unexpected Error Or Freezing:
If you have used a camera memory card in a machine other than your usual, you may find that the card is experiencing formatting issues. This can lead your computer to believe your memory card is a virus which can cause a freezing or reboot issue whereby you cannot access the data on your memory card. If you continue to experience a computer freeze when trying to connect your camera media card with your computer, the best thing to do is to contact us and we will talk you through why this issue has occurred and how we can resolve it and retrieve any data that you thought may have otherwise been lost.
