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 the MOD, NHS and Kodak trust our expertise.

We recover data from all types of removable media, including optical disks and magnetic tapes to solid state storage etc 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.

If you cannot access your data for whatever reason, an engineer from Data Recovery Specialists Ltd is always available to talk you through the problem free of charge.

We have a 95% recovery rate and our service takes as little as 24 hours for the emergency service and on average 2 to 3 working days for a list of recoverable files.
