Recovering data from a swallowed disk?
We see a lot of crazy disk damage here at DriveFish, but we can’t say we’ve ever received anything this extreme! A hang glider from British Columbia swallowed a memory card of pictures after his tandem partner was detached from the glider.
So what are the odds of recovering data from a memory card that has literally been digested by a human stomach? Pretty good according to Blackstone Forensics! The company believes the solid state nature of these memory cards can preserve the data through extreme environments, and data should be recoverable in spite of the disk’s journey.
While we certainly don’t wish any of this on anyone, we enjoy reading stories about the cutting edge of data recovery and digital forensics. But short of an event like this, we hope DriveFish can help you with all your data recovery needs!
