Proprietary Data Formats
Proprietary data formats, often covered by a patent or copyright, are intended to give the license holder exclusive control of the technology to the (current or future) exclusion of others. This means that applications have limited compatibility and support. Our engineers are able to reverse engineer file formats for the purposes of interoperability and rebuild your data into a standard format and application.

We have dedicated research and development teams writing applications and handlers to extract data from proprietary applications.  More complex data formats may require multiple processes to export, extract and reformat the data. Regardless, we can offer you a cost effective solution to meet your needs and ensure a seamless transition into your backup, archive or existing IT infrastructure.

"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
