TRC have yet again proved that regardless of what happens Flash and other portable storage media are nearly always recoverable. TRC recently received a water damaged USB memory stick that had been placed into a shirt pocket and forgotten. Subsequently it was washed and with the device appearing completely dead, when inserted into a USB port, the owner feeared he had lost his book (which was on the device) forever.
TRC assured him that, despite appearances, the device could be recovered by the use of exclusive technology - which proved to be the case. The recovery involved a read of the data chip rather than attempting any repairs to the board - which was rendered useless after it's trip inside the washing machine.
On the same day another usb device requiring the same style of recovery was recovered within 1 hour of arriving at the Security House workshops and the data was then made available to download from our ftp servers - resulting in two extremely happy customers that day!11 Years, 8 Months, 2 Weeks, 13 Hours, 29 Minutes ago.
