Hard Drive Recovery and Reliability


SD Card Recovery

Apparently SD cards have two modes. Normal and "SPI" mode, some kind of serial thing, it might work if SD mode doesn't. Guy uses an Arduino to do it: http://tech.tiefpunkt.com/2013/08/sd-card-recovery-using-an-arduino/


Neat web page listing the recommended hard drives, written by a hard drive recovery service: http://www.driveservice.com/bestwrst.htm

SSD + Power protection - this guy tested a few drives, only Intel SSD's could survive any power outage. http://lkcl.net/reports/ssd_analysis.html - http://hardware.slashdot.org/story/13/12/27/208249/power-loss-protected-ssds-tested-only-intel-s3500-passes - 2013-12.
