IMHO i don't think that you can recover back the data.
You talk about an SSD which is broken in 4-5 parts.
BTW you can try to bring your SSD to a specialized data recovery shop.
It's an expensive task and it's not garanteed to success.
Okay, thanks. There's nothing really that important on it anyways.
The NSA could probably do it, but I doubt we normal folks can. Your secrets are safe.
I have a similar questions, if you shatter HDD platters, and throw them into the trash... can someone retrieve the information on them? Like from the bits and pieces?
Like Sanpete said, someone with the right tech skills, and a very expensive and well-stocked lab, probably -could- salvage somthing from a physically-broken SSD. Almost anything is "possible".
But barring that, the data is "gone for good".
For a price that often ranges from that of a new MacBook Pro to that of a used car, some of the data may be recoverable...
(backups save money )
Secure erase the drive, there are different levels according to how important your data is and how paranoid you are. It won't be recoverable.
That is what I do. Use a big sledge hammer and flatten them down 2/3s their size. Shatters the coatings on the platters into many pieces.
I unscrew the HDD and shatter the platters
I was under the impression that, before data destruction (whether that be secure deletion, physical destruction, or both), that it was essential to first encrypt the drive's contents?
Only in the Moutain of Doom™, where the HDD platters were forged, can the data be destroyed !
Microwave for about 10 seconds does wonders for erasing SSD drives.
