USB Memory Stick Repair

Here’s another good news data recovery story! This USB drive was posted to us for repair. It was in a very bad state and required quite a bit of soldering but after a while we were able to recover the entire contents of the drive (over 3.5Gb!) and deliver to the client all within 24 hours of them posting it to us!

If you have a faulty USB thumb drive, don’t despair, give us a call and we’ll see what we can do.

The bent USB plug shows clearly that's something's not quite right here.
