Mobile devices data recovery
The category of portable gadgets, without which modern life would be unthinkable, consists of entire groups of devices: mobile phones, PDAs, smartphones, GPS navigation device, tablet PCs, voice recorders, audio and video players, e-reader devices, etc. In addition to their direct purpose, they are more and more often used for data storage and sometimes for data processing.
People store most of the important information on mobile phones and tablet PCs. Like all portable devices, you may easy damage them or mess up the setups. This explains the increased demand for telephone data recovery services or phone book contacts recovery.
The main causes of information loss on mobile devices are as follows:
- mechanical damage;
- information deletion;
- PC synchronization errors;
- password access blocking to the device;
- impact of viruses and malware;
- control software program (firmware) updating.
Memory built on Flash technology is usually used as a storage drive of mobile devices. While developing and manufacturing of Flash-memory, every manufacturer is implementing its own data recording and storage algorithms. Therefore mobile devices data extraction and recovery is a non-trivial and technically challenging task.
Until recently, to create an image of a mobile device, it was necessary to perform its complete disassembly, dismantling of storage chips, their reading and subsequent analysis. This approach gives positive results, but the device itself becomes unfit for further use. However, some manufacturers apply encryption, and even direct reading of storage chips is not having the desired effect, since is almost impossible to bypass the encryption algorithm in most cases. In such a case one shall use reading technology, when device itself serves as a decoder.
EPOS experts have developed non-destructive data copying technology from mobile devices. Application of this technology during data recovery process allows us to create complete data image of the device without destroying it.
Services rendered by EPOS as to the recovery and extraction of data from mobile devices are as follows:
- data recovery from phone, smartphone;
- audio recordings recovery from sound recorders and mp3 players;
- data recovery from iPhone, iPad;
- data recovery from tablet, PDA, e-reader devices;
- data transfer on mobile phones and smartphones;
- phone, smartphone data backup file creation.
