DriveSavers Data Recovery is a company that was founded in 1985 and has grown to be a successful data recovery company. By 2021, their revenue surpassed $7 million; they received ISO Class 5 Cleanroom, encryption, network, and SOC 2 Type II certifications. Their roster of clients includes giants such as Bank of America, Google, and NASA, Harvard University.
Recently, DriveSavers started employing X-ray technology in their efforts. The company installed an X-ray system of real-time images in November 2022. Until now, this technology was used for inspection, failure analysis, and quality assurance for electronics. In December last year, they started using it in data recovery as well. With it, they intend to continue recovering data that others think is lost forever.
Rethinking X-ray technology
The way that DriveSavers is using X-ray technology is to check for damage or review their work without opening the device. This means that there are lesser damages to it, allowing them to work more efficiently. They are also still researching this technology and looking for new ways to implement it in their business.

So far, DriveSavers has employed X-ray technology in three areas — namely evaluation, verification, and R&D. According to them, using this technology allows them to identify critically damaged chips without opening devices and confirm if a chip is properly connected. Of course, they are still finding more uses to help them in data recovery.
DriveSavers’ Director of Engineering Mike Cobb has high hopes for this technology. He shared that it is “already improving diagnostics and expanding our data recovery capabilities.” He is optimistic about further research into ways to implement X-ray technology in data recovery and thinks it may increase their accuracy, efficiency, and recovery rate. People are constantly relying on their digital data these days, so having this kind of innovation may help in retrieving it.
