SOLID STATE DRIVES AND HOW THEY WORK BOOK!

I have published TWO NEW Book/PDFs. The first is all my research and graphics with text content and notes on SSD (Solid State Drives).

This book is over 100 pages about the basics for how SSD NAND Drives (Flash Memory) and Solid State Drives and how they work from a Forensic and Data Recovery Standpoint. There are hundreds of Graphics including Text and Content written by Scott Moulton about the process Flash Drives and SSD drives perform on your data. This is a must for all Forensic and Data Recovery People looking for information about how Solid State Drives Work. There is a Color Version and a Black and White, however ALL PDF Versions are COLOR at no extra charge!!!

You can purchase this Book or PDF here: http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/smoulton

The second is a version of my famous Advanced Data Recovery Research and Whitepapers and the Hard Drive Data Recovery Diagnostics FLOWCHART in a new format. This book is over 90 pages of research on advanced hard drive recoveries and how to perform a recovery. What is the clicking noise the drive makes during the Click of Death, and what is the cause of this. During this discovery you will also be educated on most of the functions drives and the basics of all repair processes. This book also has a Color version, however ALL the PDF Downloads are in Color, only Printed Books are Black & White OR Color depending on what you purchase to ship.

You can also purchase this Book or PDF here: http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/smoulton

You will find video presentations where Scott A. Moulton has appeared at many conferences as well as additional information about hard drives, serial numbers, clean rooms and even a 21 page white-paper on the "click of death."
