backup tape copying & duplication

We can copy (duplicate / replicate) virtually any computer tape or cartridge, including 4mm DAT / DDS, 3480/3490/3570/3590, AIT, 8mm Exabyte, LTO, DLT, SDLT, SLR & VXA.

backup tape storage migration

Similar to duplication, this involves replicating the contents of one type of tape (for example, Backup Exec on DLT) to another type (again, virtually any computer tape or cartridge, including AIT, 3480/3490/3570/3590, LTO, SDLT)

backup tape cataloging and indexing

Companies often accumulate many different backup tapes and no longer know what's on them. We catalog these tapes and provide a comprehensive index list of the contents and any meta-data you request.

data conversion, file transfer and tape restoration

We convert, transfer, restore... Arcserve, BackupExec, NetBackup, Networker, VMS, AS400, BRU... the list is endless. You name it, we've almost certainly done it, on virtually any type of tape or disc. Contact us to discuss your requirements and obtain a quotation.

data recovery

We specialise in backup tape data recovery. Most bureaus only have expertise in hard disk recovery, and farm tapes out. We recover data from tapes day in and day out, in our own facilities.
