Recovering data from a melted USB drive

This case came in about a month ago, it was quite intriguing as we have seen this exact problem many times, but not the failure that was caused by the problem.

The failure point was the controller caused by a shorted capacitor. In most cases, the shorten capacitor does not kill the controller but in this case, it did. The heat and prolonged-time have completely killed the controller and we had to recover the data using Rusolut VNR.

Watch how our master technician Krzysztof manages to recover this data, explaining each step.
