Press Release: DriveSavers Free iPhone Application Now Simulates Solid-State Drive Failures

Flash-based version of DriveSaver iPhone app now available online

DriveSavers, the worldwide leader in data recovery services, adds solid-state drive (SSD) failures to its popular iPhone application, DriveSaver. The free iPhone application is a hard drive simulator that educates users about hard drive data storage technology. A Flash-based web version of DriveSaver is available now. DriveSaver is fun, educational and useful to anyone who ever wanted to see inside a SSD or any hard drive and learn why drives fail.

The most utilized feature of the iPhone application is “Crash a Hard Drive,” a simulation of real-world drive failures that users experience daily. For the first time, the updated virtual environment simulates a SSD crash, allowing users to learn how these devices can fail. The application also simulates various types of other drive failures including watching a head crash score the platters and thus turning the data into dust.

Demonstrations of the new version of DriveSaver are available in two locations: Macworld’s Mobile Applications Showcase (# 1366) and DriveSavers booth (#1448). DriveSavers booth will also host “Doctor Data’s Disk-aster Clinic” every 90 minutes. During the clinic, Dr. Data will discuss current and relevant data recovery issues and real-life scenarios of data loss.

DriveSaver is currently available for a free download on iTunes and in the Utilities and Productivity categories of the iPhone App Store. The new version is waiting Apple approval and should be available within the week. To immediately view the new Flash-based version of DriveSaver that includes the solid-state drive simulation, visit
