Tape recovery and migration from failed media suffering from logical failure or degradation.

We are experts in recoveries from tape formats, regardless of the manufacturer, age or format of the data. Our extremely high success rate, results from many years of experience, combined with specialist tools and software, specifically developed for tape and optical formats. This is why customers including CGG Veritas, Proctor & Gamble and the Ministry of Defence trust our expertise in magnetic recording techniques.

We recover data from formats such as LTO, DLT, DAT, QIC, Exabyte, Travan, 3590, 3592 and 9 track reel to reel tapes, regardless of application or format. Our technicians have successfully recovered data from media which is old and worn, flood damaged, snapped, burnt and deleted. Whether physically or electromagnetically damaged, we have the hardware to mount the media and the experience in new and legacy formats to access your data, from the latest generation data cartridges and memory sticks to spooled tape. If you do not support a particular format, we can offer a conversion service, taking your data and converting it for ease of access. We have converted terabytes of foreign or legacy formats, databases, images, and compression algorithms into smoothly operating solutions and presently support over 150 media types and 2,000 software formats.

Whether your tapes are in NTBACKUP, BackupExec, Arcserve, Netbackup, TAR, CPIO, VMS Backup, Legato Networker, BRU, SAVLIB or some other format, we're fast. We have banks of tape drives and servers running 24/7 with highly trained, motivated staff to oversee recovery operations. Specialising in challenging formats like VAX VMS (and OpenVMS) backup, AS/400 SAVLIB and SAVOBJ, corrupted .bkf files, variable-length packed decimal, and dates stored in proprietary binary structures, we have reverse-engineered thousands of obscure and difficult formats.
