Posted by Pavel TS on 09 December 2016 11:41 AM

To make data recovery from Flash devices more cost-effective and convenient for engineers, ACE Lab has now introduced Sets of adapters for dedicated purposes. These Sets can be bought in addition to PC-3000 Flash. 

The PC-3000 Flash users can get:

Monolith Set

A new solution, ideal for engineers who focus on data recovery from MicroSD, SecureDigital and UFD devices in monolith form factors.


  • Multiboard Adapter - 1 pc.
  • Replaceable Monolith Modules - 2 pcs.
  • LGA-52 / TSOP-48 Module - 1 pc.
  • BGA-152 / VBGA-100 Module - 1 pc.
  • Card Adapter - 1 pc.

New Monolith Set adapters are supported by the latest PC-3000 Flash software version 7.0.5.

Extended Set

Optimal for experts who recover data from less frequent microchips seen in Flash storage devices in a typical, non-monolith form factor. Thus, engineers can be prepared to work productively even with the rarest cases.


  • TSSOP-56 adapter - 1 pc.
  • VBGA-100 adapter - 1 pc.
  • LGA-52 [12x17] adapter - 1 pc.


Both Sets allow you to save up to 35% on the bundle purchase compared to the cost you would pay buying these adapters separately.

A new PC-3000 Flash software version 7.0.5 is now available
Posted by Pavel TS on 09 December 2016 11:40 AM

PC-3000 Flash expands the scope of solutions for data recovery from NAND-based devices like Memory Sticks, SD cards, microSD, USB Flash drives and other devices. Alongside with the new adapters, a new software version has been released.

Here is the list of latest enhancements:

  • Introduced support for new sets of adapters:

  • Added a XOR map analysis tool for tasks on AU and SSS controllers. The tool enables you to solve tasks which have non-standard XOR applied on the basis of standard one.

  • Added a mode in compiler “Block Number SD/CF”, which allows to switch off add-on optimization. In other words, the mode does not sort all add-ons based on their relevance, but adds everything that is found during structure analysis.

  • Added methods of manual block rotation (page-by-page) in the “Block/Page Cutting” tool and implementation of the version into the translator. This is necessary to enable block rotation if it is in the translator version.

  • Optimized performance of the compiler “Block Number SM 3257” in relevant marker search mode.

  • Enhanced performance of the compiler “ITE 1167 translator”.

  • Completely rewritten the block rotation preparing tool for SD/CF Phison Controllers. Now TLC microchips with 32 sector page and sector merge cases for MLC memory are supported.

  • Added new XOR and ECC to the resource database.

All authorized technical support users may download the installation file with the latest software version for PC-3000 Flash from their Customer Update Box.

Posted by Dmitriy TS on 02 November 2016 05:50 PM

With the opening of the new ACE Lab Europe office in Prague and setup of the biggest data recovery training center, all PC-3000 training courses are updated. To top it all off, the new 3-day PC-3000 RAID Data Recovery Advanced Trainingis launched.

ACE Lab offers the widest range of all types of data recovery training with profound theory & extensive practice. Now we are adding RAID technologies to the set of our courses, as RAID recovery is in very high demand. At the same time, recovering data from RAID is believed to be difficult and time-consuming.

Actually, you don’t need to be a hex-guru to successfully recover data from RAID using our technologies. The most comprehensive RAID training will help you recover data from RAID arrays in the easiest, fastest and smartest way. The course is designed and conducted by the Developers of Data Extractor & Data Extractor RAID Edition. At the training they will demonstrate you which methods and procedures are the best way to successful data recovery.

To celebrate such an important step as the opening of our new facilities in the downtown of Prague, the first two RAID Data Recovery Advanced Training Seminars on November 16-18, 2016 and November 21-23, 2016 will be conducted free of charge!

Special offers are provided for those attending two or more of our PC-3000 sessions:

  • HDD Data Recovery Expert Training
  • HDD Data Recovery Advanced Training
  • RAID Data Recovery Advanced Training
  • Flash Data Recovery Expert Training
  • Flash Data Recovery Advanced Training
  • Monolith Data Recovery Expert Training
  • SSD Data Recovery Expert Training

For more details, please feel free to contact Kate
