Mobility and digital nomadism  have led users to use a wide range of devices and data carriers: Smartphones, tablets, cameras, MP3 players… carry with them  memory cards  using  Flash memory technology : Compact Flash, SD, SDHC, SDXC, microSD memory cards…

Removable storage media facilitate the rapid transfer of data and have invested the nomadic practices of users:

USB keys  using Flash memory technology.

External hard drives and removable hard drives .

Data Recovery

The risks of incidents related to mobility and digital nomadism are added to the “generic” risks and can thus lead to data loss  :

  • Claims:  water damage ,  electrical damage  (lightning, overvoltage, etc.)
  • Material vulnerability: fall, shock, thermal shock, etc.
  • Malware: virus, crypto locker…
  • Unintentional manipulations: accidental deletion of data, formatting, hard disk partitioning, etc.
  • Hardware failures: power supply or battery problem, file or software corruption, operating system malfunction, damage to read heads or hard disk crashes, etc.

The loss of data or their inaccessibility most of the time manifests itself by an  unrecognized medium , a  partition problem ,  missing  or  corrupted files .

On memory cards, these losses relate in particular to  multimedia files  and  photos . On removable storage media, the loss of  backups  and computer data (office automation, customer files, personal data, etc.) can have a critical impact, whether on a personal or professional basis.
