Tape Data Recovery

We are experts in recoveries from tape and optical 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 and optical recording techniques.

We recover data from formats such as LTO, DLT, DAT, QIC, Exabyte, Travan, 3590, 3592, Reel to Reel and Magneto Optical, 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.

"Thank you so much for all your help - Data Recovery Specialists are a real life saver!  I do not know what I would have done without the data you recovered.  We would have probably had to re-record all the location shots, which would have been time consuming and very expensive"  BBC Wales
