Storage media leaders Toshiba and Sandisk, operating under the funding of a joint venture called Flash Forward, have announced the opening of a new factory in Mie Prefecture, Japan, devoted to the manufacture of NAND flash memory. Fab 5 is located at Toshiba's Yokkaichi Operations and is the third 300mm wafer NAND fabrication facility under the corporate umbrella.
Meanwhile, hard disk drive, flash memory, laptop, and smartphone (among other things) manufacturer Samsung announced plans to build a new, $4 billion flash memory plant in China to support the growth of the industry, as well.
As the prevalence of flash memory grows, fueled by the popularity of smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices, these factories will help industry leaders keep pace with developments and production.
24 Hour Data Keeps Up with Flash, Too
At 24 Hour Data, our data recovery specialists are working 24/7 to stay up to date on developments in flash memory and the latest data recovery methods to recover lost data from these sensitive chips.
Although not as susceptible as hard disk drives or RAID arrays, flash memory can fall victim to data corruption, read/write errors, physical damage such as water or fire damage and the ever-popular user error, that is, accidentally deleting important files.
With so much crucial data stored on your flash memory cards, whether in your smartphone or on your netbook or iPad, it's important to have a data recovery service you can trust to recover your lost data.
We have the highest data recovery success rate for hard disk drive recovery, and our flash drive recovery rate, although we haven't sampled it lately, is close to that, as well. Don't leave your flash memory in the hands of amateurs who aren't experts in data recovery from all devices. Call 24 Hour Data at the first sign of data loss.
