The popularity of SSDs or Solid State Drives is increasing day by day. Unlike a traditional HDD which rely on spinning disks, SSDs use NAND flash storage to save data on it. Both internal and external versions of SSDs are available nowadays. Most of these devices use USB as well as Serial ATA (SATA) interfaces. A typical SSD has advantages over an HDD as it possesses high data rate by consuming less power. SSDs can withstand extreme temperatures, shocks or magnetic field influences, etc. and they make no noise like an HDD due to aging.
However irrespective of its advantages, data stored on these solid state drives may get deleted because of various reasons. If one person is properly maintaining a backup of data stored on his/her SSD, it won’t establish any need for recovering deleted files from SSD drive. Without such a backup, the only possible option is recovery.
