Taking IT Mobile Data Solutions recovers data from all disks, tapes and other forms of removable media. Whatever type of storage media failure you have experienced, Taking IT Mobile can get you up and running again quickly and affordably. Below is a summary of services available for removable media.
CD / DVD
Taking IT Mobile technicians can recover your valuable data stored on either CDs or DVDs. Our technicians have extensive knowledge of the file systems used to store data on these media. If the data is present, Taking IT Mobile can recover it.
Generally, CDs and DVDs tend to be quite vulnerable to damage. For example, disks are commonly left outside of their protective cases, leaving their data surfaces exposed to damage.
Some causes of inaccessibility of CD or DVD media:
- CD / DVD drive spins up and down
- Computer hangs
- Scratch marks on media
- Cracked media
- Missing top layer (~) from media
- Media errors
Floppy / ZIP Disks
Taking IT Mobile recovers data from floppy disks and ZIP disks of all sizes and formats.
Floppy and Zip disks suffer from media wear more than any other media used to store data. This is because the media itself is thin and flimsy and the read / write heads continuously move back and forth across the media reading data thus causing the disk to degrade.
Some problems you may face with Floppy media:
- Floppy clicks inside floppy reader
- ZIP drive clicks when media inserted (click of death)
- System hangs when reading media
- Unable to access key structure areas
- Media errors
In addition to random access media, Taking IT Mobile provides complete Tape Data Recovery, including duplication and conversion services, for a wide variety of tape storage formats. Our experienced team can restore data from inaccessible tapes in almost any condition, even melted or crushed cartridges.
