Can you recover data from SSD after Secure Erase?

You know that you can perform a Secure Erase when you want to restore SSD to its original performance or sell the old SSD drive. After all, formatting an SSD is not safe enough, formatting only makes the data invisible, which makes data recovery very easy.

The Secure Erase can help us permanently delete all data stored on the SSD to protect our privacy. However, what if you change your mind and want to continue using the SSD? Can you recover data from SSD after secure erase? Well, everything is possible. In this case, you can let a professional data recovery tool help you achieve the goal.

The tool you need to recover data from SSD after Secure Erase

To recover data from SSD after secure erase, a data recovery tool is needed. The data recovery tool can deeply scan your SSD and find all deleted or missing data. MyRecover is such a tool, specifically for Windows 11/10/8/7 and Server users.

How to recover data from SSD after Secure Erase

After installing ADR for Windows on computer, you can follow the steps below to recover data from SSD.

Step 1. Launch MyRecover on computer > Hover the mouse over the drive and click Scan to scan.

Start Scan

Step 2. Wait for the scanning. There are two scanning methods: Quick Scan & Deep Scan. Quick Scan aims at finding deleted data, while Deep Scan searches other lost data.


Step 3. When the scan is complete, you can check the deleted data or lost files > Select the files you need and click the Recover button to get them back.

When you see the files you want to recover in the Scanned files list, you can recover them immediately - no need to wait until the scan is over. AOMEI makes it possible to recover data during the scanning process.

Bonus: Get an easy way to back up your SSD

I gather you have not backed up the SSD before the secure erase so you come here to find a way to recover your data. It’s lucky if you can recover data from SSD this time. However,  it won't always be so lucky, you know.

Data loss is unpredictable. To ensure that you can quickly retrieve lost data next time, it is recommended to make regular backups. You can go to Control Panel > System and Security to turn on File History. In this way, you can undo permanent delete easily.

In addition, you can let free SSD backup software help you create an SSD disk backup to protect data now and later, that’s AOMEI Backupper Standard. This free backup software can help you backup and clone SSD to any storage locations that Windows detects, like HDD, NAS, external hard drive, and USB flash drive.

Steps to backup SSD

Disk Backup

  • Click Add Disk to select the SSD.
  • Specify the location and click Start Backup.

Start Backup

If necessary, you can enable Schedule Backup and run this task daily, weekly, monthly.

Final words

That’s all about how to recover data from SSD after secure erase. Hope you can successfully recover important data with the help of ADR for Windows.

Keep this in mind: there is no 100% guarantee that you will get your data back every time. To prevent the important data from being lost again, you can turn on File History or let AOMEI Backupper help you make schedule backups.
