DriveSavers 1st to Recover Data from Catastrophically Damaged M1 and T2 Boards

DriveSavers 1st to Recover Data from M1 and T2 Boards Damaged Beyond Repair

The company may be the first in the world to recover data from Apple M1 and T2 logic boards that have been damaged beyond repair.

(Novato, CA, July 2022) – DriveSavers Data Recovery continues to be the global leader in the advancement of data recovery services, including Apple’s most advanced and secure devices featuring the M1, M2, and T2 SoCs (system-on-a-chip).

The data recovery engineers at DriveSavers have identified the critical components necessary to access data from Apple computers using M1, M2, and T2 SoCs. They have successfully transplanted the critical microchips from severely damaged Apple logic boards to functional boards, enabling them to access the data.

“The talent and expertise of DriveSavers data recovery engineers are unmatched,” explains Director of Engineering Mike Cobb. “Add to that the company’s enormous inventory of donor devices, including the latest MacBook Pro, that we’re able to strip for parts at a moment’s notice. DriveSavers is hands-down the most capable at recovering data from these ultra-advanced, ultra-secure devices.”

DriveSavers data recovery engineers specialize in advanced microsoldering techniques that are utilized to recover data from embedded flash memory devices. This includes iPhones, iPads, and Apple computers using M1, M2, and T2 technology.

These devices employ high-security protocols in which specific components need to remain connected to each other via the logic board for data to be accessible. There are thousands of surface-mounted micro-components on a logic board, and in their continual efforts to secure user data, Apple has done their best to obfuscate what is necessary to gain access to the encrypted data. Without that knowledge, data recovery from a failed logic board is impossible.

In addition, microchips must be handled with the utmost care. If components are mishandled, microscopic damage may occur, rendering the data unrecoverable. Through dedicated research and development, DriveSavers Data Recovery engineers have determined the optimal techniques for safe and effective data recovery, minimizing the risk of data loss.

These advancements allow DriveSavers to continuously recover data that others didn’t know could be recovered, or had been deemed as lost forever.
