Tape Conversion

Data Conversion, Extraction, Migration and Duplication Services

Tape recovery and conversion service informatiobOld legacy data is often held on media that is no longer used and in formats that have long since become redundant. Modern applications often lack the backwards compatibility to correctly interpret old data formats and the hardware that once wrote and read this data has fallen into disrepair or is no longer available.

Data Clinic’s data tape conversion team can successfully transfer data from outdated applications and redundant formats onto newer, more efficient platforms –
