This presentation will be about the comparison of Flash USB Drives & Solid State Drives VS. Conventional Hard Drive for Data Recovery and Forensics. This presentation is also done with 3D ANIMATIONS that rival the History Channel! As we are all aware, solid state hard drives are going to overtake the hard drives soon rather than later. Scott is performing recoveries and rebuilds on Solid State Drives and will go over the comparisons to recovery on Standard Hard Drive Recoveries. Scott is going to discuss a few new items in data recovery that he is working on with rebuilding solid state drives and flash USB memory sticks for data recovery. He has be rebuilding flash drives by removing the chips and moving them to a new flash drive to recover the data. He will compare the processes we use with Hard Drives for recovery to Flash and SSD. Scott will take a look at the control chip for flash memory. A little known fact about flash memory is that flash memory is controlled by a chip that actually has a virtual OS. These are the topics Scott is going to cover from his experiences in running a successful data recovery company and doing training class for over 10 years. If you are interested in Data Recovery and what happens to the data on Solid State Drives, or just a better understanding of how the drive works, then this is something you don’t want to miss!
