Blizzard "Juno" – Winter Storm threatens german cloud data

Blizzard "Juno" – Winter Storm threatens german stored at US cloud service providers

(Bochum, 26. Januar 2015) If winter storm "Juno" hits the US-Coast, it will not only be a challenge for the population located in that area, further more it is also a dangerous threat for the disaster recovery plans of many US Data Centers, cloud storage provider and businesses located in that area. Even in the broader area of New York an North Carolina, more than 150 relevant data centers are existing. Besides cloud service providers like Amazon, you will also find data centers from Apple, Facebook and Google.

This fact is also a challenge for german companies and hoseholds, which do store data via cloud services in US-based data centers. The experts of KUERT Data Recovery Germany do recommend to create full backups of all data which has been outsourced to the cloud for secure reasons, before the storm hits the US coast.

Bad cards for data recovery

Miniaturization and internal proprietary encryption algorithms - New challenges for data recovery of memory and flash cards

Datenrettung einer Monolith-SD-Speicherkarte(Bochum 10.04.2014) - The trend towards monolithic architecture and sophisticated propritary encryption algorithms in the production of memory and flash cards are  new challenges for data recovery labs, resulting in higher costs for customers.

SD memory cards are beeing used in millions of smartphones, digital cameras and many other devices in daily use. They contain photos, address books, emails and many other important data.

An unpleasant nature of electronic components is the fact that these are not built to last. Overvoltage, wearing or poor quality can lead to a component that can fail within a memory card too.

In case of physical damages to a flash card, usually the cause for failure can be found in an broken or disfunctional contoller. Just some years ago it was common for sd flash cards that the components have been manufactured in a way that each component have been placed seperatly on the flash card. Nowadays, the controller, power supply and memory module that keeps the data are beeing organized in one single monolithic block on the SD Memory card.

Cold Season threatens data on Smartphone, hdd and SSD

Colder temperatures means "poison" for hdd, ssd and smartphone

(Bochum, 28.11.2013) Leaving electronic devices in your car during wintertime isn´t always a clever idea, because it can entail searious damages. "Colder temperatures in your car can reduce the life cycle of batteries, because every electronical device has it´s own functional policies and tolerances to colder temperatures", says Martin Eschenberg from KUERT Data Recovery, a provider for data recovery services for SSD, hdd and smartphones located in Bochum / Germany.

E.g. Apple, recommends proper working conditions of iPhone 5s to temperatures ranging from 0 upto 35° C. "Colder conditions do not always lead to a damage of your device, but can harm your batteries in a way that the life cycle and the power capacity are getting reduced. In case of Lithium-Ion batteries and depending on the design, temperatures of <10 ° Celsius highers the internal resistance and lowers the capacity of the battery by this. So if your device discharges at minus temperatures during the night to a status that it switchs off, the threat getting shortages caused by condensation is getting really high, once you decide to switch on immediatly. It is way more to place the discharged devices in a warmer environment for acclimatization for a while and to charge them afterwards.", says Eschenberg.

Data loss at mid-sized companies - Production machines at risk

Disorganisation highers risk for data loss at mid-sized companies

(Bochum, 26.08.2013) Single elements of IT-Landscapes have been elementary changed in the last years. Since a longer time you won´t find any serial connectors like RS-232 / 422 or 485 at notebooks. But from time to time thease connectors are essential for generating backups of automatisation and process controlling in production environments. Of course it is possible using USB Solutions like serial converters, but quiet often there will be some factors, which do influence a frequently backup process. Sometimes the necessary cable can not be found, sometime the USB-Converter is in use at a different place. The causes for this are different most of the time, but the need for generating backups at older systems stays the same and gets moved all the time because of the reasons mentioned before. What can´t be done today, can be done tomorrow or even later - This is the sort of thinking which is responsible for the first little cracks in the best disaster recovery plans.

What kind of SSD can be recovered in case of damage

SSD Kaufberatung aus Sicht der Datenrettung(Bochum, 26.03.2013) In Mai 2011 the experts for NAND-Flash Data Recovery at KUERT reported, that Solid State Disc drives equiped with Sandforce-Controller of Series 2281 do create problems in data recovery, once the controller is damaged.

The background of this is a special ssd-controller used by the manufacturer, as thease kind of controllers do encrypt the data stored in the nand flash area of the drive on a very high level. This "feature" can neither be influenced by the user, nor can it be switched off in any way. But what kind of SSD can be recovered. What kind of drive a data recovery company would recommend to its clients ?

KUERT Data Recovery has an own view at things, far away from questions regarding performances or access times. KUERT presents a short overview of SSDs able to recover, even in case of physical damage to the SSD controller. Usual cause for this, overoltages or wrong handling in case of external SSD.

Thunderstorm "Sandy" threatens german Data stored in US Cloud

(Bochum, 29. Oktober 2012) If thunderstorm „Sandy“ hits the east coast of the U.S, many disaster recovery plans of data center and cloud infrastructure providers situated at the U.S. east coast will be tested. Besides cloud storage providers like Amazin, there are also data centers of Apple, Facebook and Google located in that area.

This fact is also a challenge for german companies and households, which do store data into the cloud hosted in U.S data centers. The experts of KUERT Datenrettung recommend, to accomplish complete backups of all data outsourced to cloud service providers, before the storm "Sandy" hits landfall.

Threatening fail of hard disc drive - Sudden Death in Apple iMac

KUERT Data Recovery Germany recommends all users of an iMac with 21,5” or 27” screen sizes, which have been bought inbetween Oktober 2009 and Juli 2011, to check their hard disc drives via the help of the Apple-Support and Service. Because some of the 1 TB drives which are integrated in those iMacs do have a risc for data loss.

Apple had created a special website just for this cause, enabling iMac users to check via serial number, if their iMac does contain a 1 TB Seagate drive which is affected by this.
