PC-3000 SSD

The PC-3000 SSD Software System operates in tandem with one of the three up-to-date hardware platforms – PC-3000 Express, PC-3000 UDMA, or PC-3000 Portable – and it is intended for SSD repair and diagnosis and for data recovery from SSDs with SATA, PATA, mSATA, and M.2 (NGFF) interfaces and the capacity from 64 GB to 1 Tb produced by different manufacturers, such as OCZ, Corsair, Crucial, RunCore, A-DATA, G.Skill, Micron, Plextor, Intel, Samsung, Seagate, SanDisk, Kingston and others.

The PC-3000 SSD contains a set of specialized utilities for working with solid-state drives. This set includes the Universal Utility for diagnosing any SSD based on the ATA-8 specification (both currently existing models and those that will be manufactured in future) and the Active Utilities (Special Utilities) intended for working with a particular drive model in factory mode. It enables to deeply diagnose SSDs, to perform service operations, to re-write the drive's microcode, to get direct access to memory chips, to carry out low-level formatting blocking the damaged cells and placing their addresses into the defect table, and to perform many other useful operations.

The PC-3000 SSD is started from the main window of the PC-3000 Express, UDMA, or Portable System by means of clicking a button on the desktop panel.


PC-3000 SSD has the following functions for data recovery:

  • verify and restore the SSD's service information
  • read and write the content of the SSD's ROM
  • load the microcode into the drive's RAM
  • emulate the translator operation in order to get access to user data
  • view the password and reset the password that was earlier set on an SSD
  • turn off background processes in an SSD to prevent data damage
  • provide direct access to the content of memory chips (it makes unsoldering unnecessary)
  • work with the Data Extractor

PC-3000 SSD has the following functions for SSD repair (to recover normal operation):

  • diagnose an SSD in factory mode
  • verify and restore the SSD's service information
  • read and write the content of the SSD's ROM
  • load the microcode into the drive's RAM
  • view the logs of hidden defects (P-page, G-page)
  • perform low-level formatting to hide the discovered defects
  • change the configuration and identification parameters
  • reset the logs and S.M.A.R.T. parameters
  • search for the damaged memory chips

The list of Active Utilities of the PC-3000 SSD System is expanded as soon as new SSD models are studied, and it is a continuous process. Those utilities that are currently available allow you to successfully recover data from all contemporary solid-state drives and to resolve the majority of wide-spread SSD problems. Special adapters and connectors for PC-3000 Express and UDMA have been added in order to use technological interfaces to diagnose and repair drives.
