While SD and micro SD cards are less vulnerable to physical damage than flash drives, you can still crack their NAND chip or controller if you step on or bend the card. Logical failure is also more common in SD cards, which can happen if you don’t eject it properly from your camera or computer. Power surge is another common cause of crash in SD cards. If the controller on the PCB fails, the data is still intact on the NAND chip, but it can only be recovered by a firm with advanced lab equipment. All micro SD cards are of the compact monolithic design, so data recovery from them is difficult and requires advanced tools.

Century IT Consultants has all the required equipment and experience to successfully extract data from damaged traditional and monolithic cards.
