Intel SSD 320 Series 8mb data recovery


 
Computers,Software,Website Promotion
In this discussion I will spread light on Intel ssd 320 series failure. I will also explain how this happens and the remedy for data recovery including all three types of ssd drives.

After the introduction of this Intel 320 Series SSD, we came to know some drives have this 8mb bug with wrong serial number BAD_CTX. In this kind of situation, the drive cannot access data and the only solution that Intel offers is to wipe the drive but this will erase all the data. Wiping the drive is scary when there is important data stored on the media. When the drive with the above problem is connected to a normal computer, it is properly detected but it will not mount. The drive will not properly show in disk management. Drive initialization is also not possible. Updating the firmware might erase all the data so Intel help is not applicable.

If the drive has data then it is critical to first recover it. This drive has multiple nand chips that hold the data. There are some approaches to recover data from such drive. I will discuss this later in this article but the main question is, is it possible to recover this ssd? The good news is our data recovery expert has recovered this drive in the past. He did a great job by recovering everything on the drive.

This drive will show 8mb storage and the bad_ctx bug will not allow the computer to reach the nands chips. If a traditional drive has bad heads, it will either show 0mb space or 3.84 gb space. This means the head are bad. In case of ssd, it is the same situation like a bad head. In regular drive the bad heads can be replaced but if the surface is bad, then that is it but in this case our technician removed all the chips from the drive and read them one by one and successfully arranged all the nand chips to convert it into useful data. This was a very time consuming project but in the end he was able to do it.

There are three main components of an ssd drive. The main board keeps all the components and that is why it is called motherboard. The nand chips are responsible to store data in the raw format. The controller is responsible for smooth operations of the ssd. Ssd drives come in three types. One is the regular 2.5” drive. The next one is the Apple PCI ssd drive and the third one is the micro drive also known as msata drive. All these drives use the same kind of logic and when they fail same technique is used to recover them. Our technician has recovered all these three types in the past. Talking of the 8mb bug, the question is how this happens? This happens due to a sudden power loss situation. This can happen to laptops that have low battery and are not connected to a power source or laptops that have lose dc jack which can disconnect the laptop from power source all of the sudden. When the 8mb bug attack the drive, the laptop or desktop computer will give message like no boot media available and the computer will not load Windows. There are different procedures on the Internet that guide how to bring the ssd back to life but these procedures are not for those who have data on the machine. So it is very critical to take the ssd to an experienced and professional data recovery company for data recovery. If you need help with this kind of ssd failure, we can help.

In this Article I talked about Intel 320 series ssd drive 8mb bug that stops the computer from being reading data from the nand chips. I have also explained the recovery process.
